Wal-Mart wants to come to your house… and load your groceries in the fridge. Seriously.
On Friday, the retail giant announced a partnership with August Home, a smart-lock startup, that would allow a delivery person to enter customers’ orders and put groceries away in their refrigerators.
How about no. Because this sounds like the start of a Charles Bronson film. I mean, what could possibly go wrong, allowing a total stranger you don’t know walk into your house and have access to your possessions?
Might be for some of you out there, but I think I’ll skip this service, thanks.
I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
