Hahaha.........what's next? Next, Android phones can control our cars, control our stove (Auto Cook).......
How to use Auto Cook from Android
Step 1. Just turn the power on.
Step 2. Order a food, for example just say Burrito.
Step 3. Be patient, it takes some time to cook.
Step 4. Bon Appetite!
Tips : Don't cook when the battery is low, remember to charge it before cooking!
Warning : Remember to turn the power off!
Don't put your hands on the fire!
Thanks for choosing Android Auto Cook!
Always be with you! :)

Gee, what's next? Demonstrating how Android can be used to hack the PLCs at power stations again or another Stuxnet-esque attack?

That's actually pretty scary, the possibility of crashing a plane at your finger tips on a smartphone.
