Washing machine hacked to tweet when the load’s done: @maytag, you listening? – Engadget.

I’m a huge fan of taking “old tech” like a washing machine, particularly something as old as this one, and leveraging the communications ability that the Internet provides.  Twitter and a washing machine, or any other long running appliance such as a dish washer or dryer, is a great match.  When you team up twitter with a cell phone or other mobile device you have a match made in heaven.  That said, the public nature of this isn’t necessarily the best way to do this, an email may have sufficed.

I think we’ll see this level of integration becoming more and more common.  Buzzers or bells are so 2008.
