Kitchen Computer Idiotcy
« on: December 10, 2006, 02:33:40 PM »
Do any of these Tech Hardware Companies get the idea of a Kitchen Computer? This pisses me off. I'll give you an example...

Here is the Honeywell 316, a Computer for the Kitchen in 1969 that stored Cook Book recepies and not much else. Why did it not sell? It was huge and expensive. See for yourself.





Looks funny huh? "Awww those poor 1969 bastards! We have better tech these days!"



Well...look at this. The new Kitchen Computer of 2006/2007. The HP IQ770 "Crossfire". The problem...





Its expensive and BIG AS FUCK!!!

Look at that kid! The machine looks like its going to eat him! WTF dose this machine eat, live cuban infants!?! @,@;

Nobody would put this in there Kitchen. The closest you would get is an iMac Mini but its a New Age Mac and you need a monitor and such.

When will these fuckers learn?

Step One: Make a Machine that is at its smallest a Nintendo Wii and largest a Mac Mini.

Step Two: Build a Touch Screen on it and a Microphone.

Step Three: Slap a OS on it that is exclusive to Touch Screen and Voice Commands.

Step Four: Give it 8-10 gigs of space. Put 2 USB Plugs on it and a Media Card Slot like SD or Compact Flash for Expansion.

Step Five: Have a suction cup or some device that makes it stick to a wall.

BINGO! Kitchen Fucking Computer!!!!

*sigh*

Here's a sort of small one:



I've seen one that's under the counter, flips up, and is a touch screen.  But I can't find it on Google now.  Seems like any laptop would work perfectly in the kitchen.

What's the benefit of a kitchen computer anyway?  Just to pull up recipes from the net or a database?  Why not just print them out on some other computer?  Printing up a page is what, maybe 5 cents?  At that rate, you could print up 20,000 pages for the same price of a $1,000 touch screen computer which would be obsolete within a few years.  20,000 printed pages would allow you to print up one recipe per day for more than 50 years straight.

Unless I'm missing some other point of having a computer in the kitchen.

Just so you can brag to others that you have a computer in your kitchen...

The kitchen is the one place I don't like technology, it's my one place I can get away from it all and just have fun cooking.

Between our smart stoves, dishwashers, and electric appliances, I'd say we have just as much technology in the kitchen as we do everywhere else, but I get what you're saying.

We provide with the tech support for Beyond where I work and I kind of like the thingy.
you can have recipes and make it to contact your Doc to check if the food is healthy among other really supercool hi tech stuff.

Oh and it brings enhanced FM radio.

What strange new technology is THIS?

Yeah, maybe you RICH people have all that.  I don't have one single LED light in my kitchen, though.

I've Seen PC's built into REFRIGERATORS. So when you are filling your cup with water (in the built in dispenser) you can check your email and order more filters for the water dispenser.

I don't have a smart stove, either. I do, however, have an electric coffee grinder and a can opener, though I don't use either. My only luxury appliance is a rice cooker that switches from a cooking to serving heat after a certain amount of time so I can not worry about the rice while I'm cooking. It's pretty sweet, but I think my brother may have stolen it from an Asian restaurant.  :-\

I saw this coffee maker, with a digital analog clock. Doesn't that defeat the purpose!?
