George Foreman USB iGrill

Cooking For The Web Set

The low-fat, high-bandwidth solution to your networked cooking needs is finally here. The George Foreman USB iGrill conveniently connects to your home or office PC using USB 2.0 technology, and provides a sophisticated web-based cooking interface.


Running late at work? Need to get dinner on the table? It is easy to warm up the iGrill from any internet connection. With a little advance planning, your meal can be ready when you get home!

Using the USB current to directly charge high voltage capacitors, the iGrill does not require any additional power supply, making it perfect for dorm or office cooking.

I feel extremely stupid asking, but is, IS THIS THING REAL? I mean, c'mon! I'd be very pressed to believe that they'd make a kitschy iMac-styled grill for the geek who has everything, but the notion that someone would connect this sucker to their PC and ping it through the net... Well, that just makes me say "hmm..." I, for one, don't take kindly to the idea that every 133+ h@x0r in Omaha would have the ability to fire up my steakburner, but maybe that means I'm a Luddite, completely behind the times. Eh... so be it.

And, along those lines...

Seriously, ppl... no
Is this what they mean by "core dump"?

Web goes down the toilet

An internet toilet roll browser and a net-enabled chopping board are among cutting edge designs at the Ideal Home Show.

The show, which runs at London's Earls Court exhibition centre until 6 April, is home to a variety of strange gadgets.


Design graduate Andrew Cubitt has taken the humble toilet roll and turned it into a hi-tech news and information service.

A unit installed in front of a toilet on the cubicle wall provides up-to-the-minute information on products, stocks and shares and lottery results.

People can even print off the information on a standard toilet roll.

Yeah... I tend to leave the toilet humor off this site, but this one's really tempting. Um. No... not gonna go there. Really, are people that desperate to have up-to-the-freakin'-second information, that they have to bring the outside world into the john, which to some can be man's last refuge from the ever-increasing world of nonstop data chaos? I just don't know.
