Every now and again something catches my eye straight from ‘left field’, and today it is this article from The Register about a toaster that’s able to burn pretty much anything onto your morning slice, including the news. Called the Scan Toaster, it connects to a PC over USB and downloads everything from local weather conditions and the current time to the morning’s news headlines which it then toasts onto your bread!
As my mother used to say “whatever will they think of next?” 🙂

a thick coating of vegemite will fix it! – yuppies…..
Our cluster facilitator is always reminding us that ICT needs to have a pedagogical purpose. She tells a joke (which I can’t remember) of a parrot who says in a shrill voice: “What’s the purpose, What’s the purpose?” Well, why would I want my news on my breakfast toast? “What’s the purpose!”
I don’t know about you, but I like to spread my toast with something while it’s still hot and then eat it! Were I to read it first, it would be cold before I got to spread it. Ack. Gack. Ptui.
