Given the controversy of some stories - and quite a few idi..people... that actually believe them and cause an enormous stir about it (I can point out a half dozen so far alone) its better to be lame and obvious than believable and deal with the consequences.

My first apartment 10 years ago.. I had a stove made by a company 'Gibson'.

Does this mean I can finally learn how to hack a Gibson? lol..

For those who do not get the joke, I feel sad.

Why wouldn't you want an LCD screen on your toaster? I stare at it all the time waiting for my bread but now I can hook it up to the internet and watch porn while I wait!

An LCD screen would be epic. Imagine being able to set a toasting profile I would like a gradient toast. Black on top to crispy brown on bottom :P


I wonder if we could put Linux on it though? Windows XP for home appliances sounds like bad news

I think a LCD panel is overkill. I just want a clear side panel so I know exactly what's happening to my toast. Maybe some blue LEDs.

Linux is great and all, but I don't think I'm ready for a world where it's installed on everything:

The LCD screen could post a video of elves with flamethrowers toasting your bagel.
The fridge LCD could show videos of elves snowboarding in your freezer, etc..
