At the end of season 4 of Silicon Valley, the guys find out that the pied piper add has been uploaded to the network of smart fridges. It is explained briefly that this happened while Gilfoyle hacked Jin Yang’s smart fridge to show a video of a chinese guy sucking someone off. My question is:
- how does uploading a compressed video to a smart fridge’s memory also install the whole software for the new internet they are designing?
- How did installing an app on a single smart fridge allow it to spread to all other fridges?
- The numbers seem weird - they claimed the whole of Milcher’s data was stored on 30000 smart fridges, which was previously stored on a network of +160000 hooli phones? The volume we are talking about are petabytes as that is what Richard said to BigHead it would take on the stanford servers in the same episode.
