The wine pod. I just don't get it.

I am not going to say that it is not worth it. Or that it is a gimmick. I was going to but then realized that that would be hypocritical of me. I have always believed that if someone things that something is great, and I don't, then it might be that I just don't get it.

I am talking about the "Wine Pod" ( ). It is a home winemaking appliance that allows you to make wine at home. Funny, I already do that. There has to me more.

It is attractive, and the nerd in me finds the large stainless steel pod, with a digital readout and data-port to a laptop is intriguing. I may not be a good judge of appropriate use of technology, after all, I wrote a controller for my spa using Java. What? Write once, spa anywhere.

In any case, I am missing a big piece in the whole Wine Pod thing. It seems that for some, undeclosed amout, which I have to assume is a bundle, you get the large, stainless, phallic looking thing, that sits in your living room and makes a small quantity of wine. Am I wrong? Please enlighten me.
