Samsung's RF4289 Refrigerator Is Smarter Than Your Average Fridge

The refrigerator of the future has seemingly arrived today, carrying with it a lofty price tag of $3,499. The Samsung RF 4289 has the features of any refrigerator in the market today, but it can do a whole lot more than just keep your groceries and leftovers chilled.

The RF 4289 was first unveiled at the CES 2011 amid a curious audience. Dubbed as the "Smart Fridge", the RF 4289 is a four-door Wi-Fi enabled cooling unit with an 8-inch touchscreen nestled prominently above the water and ice dispenser on the front of its double doors.

With the touchscreen, users can access content quickly such as recipes or catch the latest grocery markdowns (in case you're always on the lookout for deals, but hey, if you can afford this fridge, then maybe you won't even need the discounts or coupons). Aside from that, the touchscreen can also be used as a virtual message board to leave notes, key in to-do lists, or leave messages for your family.

Aside from that, you can also use it to check the weather, view the latest photos online, or read the latest news as they roll in. But of course you can also do that on your computer or tablet instead of standing around in your kitchen tapping away at your refrigerator.

While Samsung has come up with a novel idea that will allow housewives, chefs, and cooks to maximize their time in the kitchen and make finding recipes and the like easier, the price is a bit too steep to justify the added feature which is the touchscreen. You know, you could just stick with your old fridge and get an iPad which is considerably cheaper (if you still don't have one) since the iPad 2 was launched. Just saying.

Anyway, if you're still curious about the RF 4289 and want to see it in action, check out this video shot during the CES 2011:

What do I think... I think

What do I think... I think that all this technology is unnecessary for a fridge, it's almost has a laptop incorporated on it's door, why do we need that? I think too much digital technology takes us the joy of spending time in the kitchen. Recently my old fridge broke so I called a refrigerator repair service, it took about an hour to get it fixed. Who would I have to call if the Samsung RF broke? I doubt there are many fridge repair people that are experts in digital repair as well...

I originally wanted to major in web design because i like the creative aspect of it, but what is the difference between the two?. Also, what should I major in if I want to design and code (html, css, PHP) sites?

The author has written an excellent article. You made your point and not much to discuss. It’s like this universal truth that you can not argue with the truth is not universal, everything has its exception. Thanks for this information.
