Dead tech walking: Casualties of 2018 and 2019’s endangered list – CNET

Kuvee FreshPour smart wine bottle aged poorly

Life for Kuvee, a Kickstarter-funded startup with a bottle designed to extend the life of wine after it’s been opened, turned to vinegar in March when it shut down. The CEO blamed the Napa fires for its troubles, and stated “to properly educate the market, we would need a much louder voice and considerably more capital.” It needed more than that. Unfortunately, the FreshPour requires proprietary cartridges, now leaving owners with a useless piece of smart home history.
