    Now that is what I should really be looking for. Happens to me almost every single day. Maybe I should trust myself a little more.

    I have no intention of buying an all-in-one refrigerator-TV-computer-microwave-coffemaker-toaster-drill-hammer-nosepicker, nor have I ever considered it. I'm a firm believer in tools that do one thing very well rather than several things mediocre.

    However, in my last house, I wired in both TV cable and CAT5e Ethernet jacks behind the refrigerator, just in case the next person wanted something fancy.

    Those jacks ended up coming in handy when I realized that the top of the kitchen cabinets was the perfect spot for the cable modem and WiFi router and that I could route the cables through the gap between the cabinets.

    And one aimed at the stove. (Did I leave that burner on?)

    It isn't necessary so I don't think I would go for it, in my opinion. Though it's really your choice if you really want a refrigerator having those features. In our case, an appliance like this doesn't really need to have features as high-tech as having an LCD screen.
