    All I was thinking when I read this was "Okay, I know they always used to say that if a toaster had a CPU, you could put Linux on it...." Well, we've hit the point now where that could literally be true.
    I think that was done a couple of years ago actually.,,

    As was the emacs making coffee.

    Well my microwave has a CPU, but it has a legitimate reason for it.

    Just wait a few years until all those home appliances are networked and home owners are confronted with DDoS attacks against their home-network: "transfer 5000$ to this account, or within 48h all your food will be spoiled, your garage door will be blocked and your microwave will continously post on twitter about your binge-eating sessions!"
    ah, brave new world

    no, it does not have such a thing. :-(

    The screen provide temperature controls, presets like vacation/party modes and also to get drinks and food to the correct temperature in their special drawer. There are also applications to avoid post-its and like, such as contacts, calendar (with alarm, for birthday reminders), photo viewer (ie: picture frame with slideshow) and recipe book built-in.
