    Keeping your data toasty

    As a digital lifestyle person, it's always a chore finding ways to store all of your precious media safely. Of course, the toaster is well known for its data-guarding abilities. As such, one man, a Mr. Dave Goeke, has made it his mission to built toaster-based NAS products.
    Building computers in a toaster was done to for the ApplianceWare marketing team to use at sales presentations, demonstrations, trade shows, and in marketing collateral. Toaster RAID seemed to give customers a good laugh when used to demonstrate ApplianceWare Server. The array of blinking busy lights added to the effect.
    Tom's Hardware has more.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
