It’s been almost six months since Breaking Bad ended and now that no more episodes are being made, we have a Jesse Pinkman-sized hole in our hearts. We started to reminiscence about his antics, and realized that when you look back at all the seasons, it’s clear the poor guy was never able to catch a break. And that theme held true even when he was dealing with phones, of all things. Cell phones, pay phones, corded phones… so much struggle.
Here are just a few choice Jesse vs. Phone moments.
1. Jesse’s voicemail message is glorious and confusing in equal measure.
"Yo 148, 3-to-the-3-to-the-6-to-the-9. Representin’ the ABQ. What up, biatch? Leave it at the tone!"
2. That time Jesse hit a phone so it hit him back.
Jesse is prone to shooting the messenger (figuratively speaking… usually), even if that messenger is just a poor landline.
3. Jesse uses science to get better reception!
It’s not very effective.
4. Jesse is unimpressed by this totally sweet Hello Kitty phone that Saul gives him.
We have no idea why.

The Internet has connected humanity in ways we never dreamed possible and now, it’s doing the same for machines. The next frontier of interconnection is “The Internet Of Things,” meaning machines ranging from refrigerators to wind turbines that gather data and connect with humans.
The goal of these “smart machines” is to make life easier and more streamlined than ever before. But before we embrace a world where even the microwave has an Internet connection, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of giving machines unfettered access to the web.
Today, we have a cautionary tale about such a world. This story comes from a young man named Ryan*, who was an early adopter of Internet-connected appliances. Ryan purchased a Smart Fridge, a new product that has been on the market for just a few months. His photo essay, “My Smart Fridge Went Rogue,” has been republished here in the hopes that the events he experienced can be prevented in the future.
We have reached out to the manufacturers of Smart Fridge, but have yet to receive an official comment. We welcome their response to these actual events.
* Editor’s note: Names have been changed to preserve the anonymity of those involved.
1.I was so excited the day I got my Smart Fridge.
2.It was cool at first.
3.But soon, things started to get pretty weird.
4. That’s when I discovered its Instagrams.
5.Then one day, I came home to find this.
6.I immediately confronted the fridge.
7. From there, things started to get messy.
8.And even messier.
9. I needed a break, so I went to visit my parents. While I was gone, I saw that a bunch of my friends had been invited to a party.
10. Of course, I was the one who had to clean up the morning after.
11. I’d finally had enough, but I was too late. The app was getting an upgrade.
