Appliances is more generic term than just home appliances. NetApp is network appliance, e.g. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:10, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
I suspect more people in the world directly interact with home appliances than network appliances. However there are pages for what you're mentioning or were looking for, Network Appliance, Inc. has had a page since 2004, and Computer appliance has had a page devoted to the subject since April of 2007. Computer Appliances may have been named in reference to the fact that they operate in a fixed manner somewhat like the well established functions of home appliances.

Agreed. This article is a complete mess. Why does Small Appliances only speak about brown goods? I think they'd be under an Electrical Appliances article, if anything. If you look at a site like Appliances Online or someone else prominent, 'small appliances' are coffee machines, toasters, and food prep equipment (mixers, etc). This seems to be the industry standard, so this article should follow that grouping. M0z (talk) 23:33, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
As the comments above from 2009-11 point out, the article's structure is poorly defined. It begins by classifying appliances into 3 groups, but never talks about those groups further. Instead it just talks briefly about several topics relating to home appliances. Do any TAFI editors have ideas for the ideal structure of this article? Winner 42Talk to me! 02:16, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps merge in to one massive article?, other than that I'm stumped as too what to do to be honest. –Davey2010Talk 02:24, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
That might work, this article is quite a difficult one to work through because the topic is relatively unique and very broad. Winner 42Talk to me! 14:22, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
