We are big on convergence, on single devices that do multi-tasking. We often make fun of what the Unclutterer calls uni-taskers, silly appliances that do one silly thing that nobody needs. But here is a multi-tasker that defies logic, a toaster with a radio built in. They use different voltages, the radio has to be insulated, it is just silly, for £49.99 (only $US 68.32)

I suppose there is a relationship between toast and music; they both have jam sessions. But that is about it for this one.
