The Utility Seems Dubious At Best

Steven is asking a perfectly reasonable question.

Why would anyone want their refrigerator to have an internet connection?

Of all the appliances, one that would seem to have the least need for this is the refrigerator, since its only job is to maintain two or perhaps 3 CONSTANT temperatures. There is no need for updates, indeed they are unwelcome.
