Pointless office lunchtime gadget
« Reply #31 on: May 25, 2007, 11:06:53 AM »
Ok I have to ask, just what was being passed round the office when this idea was started.  eeek:

Quote
Tired of the lunchtime greasy McBurger with pickle routine? Looking to expand your culinary sophistication without leaving your cube? Look no further than the Fundue? - the World's first desktop USB fondue set. With features like an LCD display, blue LED glowing heater element and fireglow USB cables you'll be the MacDaddiest, most svelte lemming in the office come lunchtime.



Quote
Sure, you'll be sucking precious energy from your computer's power supply that your motherboard might need, but who cares when you are also sucking on a piece of crusty french bread drenched in a nutty Gruyere!

Due to current limitations in the USB specification for power consumption, your Fundue should only be used to melt cheeses and chocolates. However, when the new USB 3.0 specification hits the industry (which will allow USB devices to consume much more power), your Fundue will be ready for advanced fondue techniques such as oil dipping and desktop frying!

Features and Specs of your Fundue include:

  • 1 Fundue? pot with blue LED regulated heating element
  • 1 Fundue? base, with Oil-Guard? technology, LCD screen and control panel
    • 1 Blue FireGlow USB device Cable
    • 6 Fundue? Forks with included monitor attachments
      • Auto-power off mode for decreased loss of life risk
        • LCD screen displays current temperature.
        • Included CD Software allows you to use your Fundue? LCD screen to optionally scroll MP3 ID3 tags when you listen to music at your computer.

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe
