How to turn on your lights the Philips way

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/23

This was too funny to let go unnoticed: [WayBack] How to turn on the light at home, Philips Version – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+.

It was shown during [Archive.isGoogle Cloud Next 2017 in Amsterdam and immediately reminded me of The Big Bang Theory – How to turn on a lamp below.

A few notable entries from the comments:

  • Wie viele Server braucht man bei Philips, um eine Glühbirne zu wechseln?
  • Apple macht das wohl ähnlich, hier dient ein AppleTV oder ein iPad als “Bridge zur Bridge”.
  • They’re at least honest — the icon of the cloud in the upper left prominently displays a “waiting” circle animation. I also notice the use of the word “looks” rather than “works” in the title, which is probably also accurate.
