The Asian model (as reflected on the glass) was cut out of the original ad photo of LG microwave and replaced by NBC 30 Rock's GE Executive Jack Donaghy.
Advances in oven technology are more the province of Jack Donaghy's former GE overlords, but over in South Korea, LG's taking a real-world stab at making the fictional CEO proud. An update to its Lightwave line, this new, next-gen kitchen appliance employs halogen heaters to cut down on traditional cooking time, a range of menu pre-sets to accommodate your meal-making and, most worrisome of all, a wireless connection for smartphone control. With that last tidbit of information, you should be either horrified by the opportunities for absent-minded, accidental pants pocket activation or pleased and at ease with the convenience it affords (which means you likely have children and can now tend to that bottle of red undisturbed from the couch). So, what exactly can you do from the comfort of your own phone? For starters, you can set the timer while you're away, adjust the temperature and even activate the steam cleaning feature. It's not clear if all of this remote action's restricted to the company's own devices, but if you're living in the company's home territory and have a fancy for haute-tech cuisining, this one's for you.

Commanding home appliances remotely sounds terrific yet a bit scary and dangerous as it might burn down your house due to so much convenience that LG brings to American homes and in turn leads to laziness and absent-mindedness.
Perhaps LG is trying to maximize the application of smartphone technology on all home electronic products; from LG Cinema 3D Smart TV remote control technology to LG oven technology advancement.
Decades from now, we might see a Rosie (The Jetsons Robot Maid) being controlled by our own smartphone.
