English man spends 11 hours trying to make cup of tea with Wi-Fi kettle

LONDON. KAZINFORM - All Mark Rittman wanted was a cup of tea. Little did he know he would have to spend 11 hours waiting for his new hi-tech kettle to boil the water, The Guardian reports.

Rittman, a data specialist who lives in Hove, England, set about trying to make a cup of tea around 9am. But thanks to his Wi-Fi enabled kettle it wasn't long before he ran into trouble.

News of Rittman's plight quickly spread on Twitter, further slowing his progress.
