People often talk about a Web
Toaster as a joke. One particular
toaster goes on the web to get the
weather and burns/prints out a
symbol of the forecast for the day.
With Toast Scramble, you type a
small message at the company's
website and enter the hardware
message then gets
sent translated into a secret code
specific to one out of 15 toasters
and saved on that toaster. Up to
messages can be saved in cache
printed in any order. Simple
symbols can be sent as well with
patented typewriter styled heating
elements in the shape of tesselating
triangles. The toaster comes with
its own decoder ring and could
eventually send those seeing eye 3D
pictures in later revisions.
Secret messages and pictures can
around the world and then eaten.
Remember, professional spies
their cache first.

||I hope you two still like it even

||Mmmm. Scrambled eggs and toast. +
||Sorry, but this isn't any good.
The redundant idea made sense; this one's just scrambling to hold on.
