Watch Out, Tim Cook! The Froaster Proves That Windows 8 Is Doing It Right! [Video]

Watch Out, Tim Cook! The Froaster Proves That Windows 8 Is Doing It Right! [Video]

During last week’s earnings call Tim Cook was asked what he thought about Windows 8 being “optimized” for tablets. Cook humorously responded that, “anything can be forced to converge, but the problem is that products are about tradeoffs, and you begin to make tradeoffs to the point where what you have left at the end of the day does not please the user. You can converge a toaster and a refrigerator, but those things are probably not going to be pleasing to the user.

Well, guess what, Timmy? A couple of genius engineers over at The Brydge went out and combined two of the greatest kitchen appliances of our time — the toaster and the fridge —  and came up with the glory of The Froaster. Eat those words! Eat them!

Microsoft spokesman Frank Shaw tweeted that the Cook must be mistaken about Windows 8 tablets: “must be a typo. it’s not a toaster/fridge. It’s a toaster/oven. Those seem pretty popular.” However, after the beautiful unveiling of the Froaster, we think Cook might have inadvertently discovered the next great American innovation.

What do you think? Do you want a Froaster? Let us hear it in the comments.

    A great satire in the humorous vein of the National Lampoon’s “Convertible Canoe Cap” from their mid-seventies lampoon spoof – “The Eddie Bean Catalog”

    I’ll buy one. But maybe without the junk food in there. Not sure I like the toaster attached to the fridge.

    I am going to have to disagree. The Toaster, while being an amazing appliance, is destroyed by the glory that is the Microwave. Please refrain from making statements that are incredibly misleading. 

    Thank you.

    “I am going to have to disagree. The Toaster, while being an amazing appliance, is destroyed by the glory that is the Microwave. Please refrain from making statements that are incredibly misleading.” 

    It’s really the clash of the titans when it comes to the toaster and microwave. Does a toaster make your ego, bagel, bread crunchy and delicious? The toaster holds it own against the microwave and does not lose out so quickly as you might think.
