To power these new features, we'll ask your permission to sync a copy of your email, calendar and contacts to the Microsoft Cloud.

So they're going to copy your data from one cloud to another.

When will the madness stop?

Hopefully before Joni Mitchell can look at both sides, 'cause she doesn't really know clouds at all.

But can you turn on your juicer from your phone while you're in the driveway so that it's done when you open your front door? That's worth $400 to absurdly wealthy people.

Assuming you manually loaded a pack earlier, so it could sit there, un-refrigerated all day, ready to deliver that room-temperature drink at that command - yum.

(Having pre-chopped fruit and/or veggies in single-serving plastic packs delivered in chilled containers to you door seems pretty wasteful, btw.)

So ... Juicero Inc. makes a juice machine and that juice machine makes juice ...

It makes both the juicer & the bags that go in it, containing the juicing material. It appears that Juicero makes both juicers and juice. The question might have been about which their focus was on. At $400, they're not giving away the shaver to sell blades, but it's clear that they're partly counting on the subscription model.

Not to worry. I still get American Girl adverts after buying one for my niece. Who just graduated college.

I still get Hello Kitty adverts after buying some USB drives as a joke.

Your "nice" and "joke" aside, just a reminder that /. is a safe space and you're free to be yourself w/o any judgment. :-)

... some investors were surprised to discover a much cheaper alternative: You can squeeze the Juicero bags with your bare hands. Two backers said the final device was bulkier than what was originally pitched and that they were puzzled to find that customers could achieve similar results without it.

... from some Fleshlight investors.
