Wink Blue teeth drill motor

The new stove soon to be delivered has Blue Tooth's, I have been told.
I do think that is a antenna function that might permanently fail...
I have zero use for a blue tooth capable stove, for any reason: having mastered stove usage as a we'sprig-of-a-youte.
However, there is no delete and price drop on 'the' stove, so, it will just never get turned on.
I need a Drill motor so I went looking and for over $200 I can get a Blue Tooth capable drill motor. I'm at a complete loss to understand why/how anyone would ever need or want a 90 1/4 Drill Motor that is Bluetooth capable.
A stove, I can think of things that might be functional but a hand held drill motor...

E
Yes, I know, it is there because it can be, that is the only reason

Oh, and most tool manufacturers are pitching it as a security feature. Locate tools, and disabled when out of range.

Ok...
Would be just my luck that on the day I absolutely need the darn thing some would hack the internet of things and disable it for fun!

Ah well I ain't buying it.

I want a Bluetooth fridge I can write the grocery list on. Why? Because I never remember to grab that piece of paper laying on the counter when I head to the store. I'm old and forgetful. Hadn't heard of the drill motor thing before, not a selling point for me.
