Toast Scramble

Previously Toast Post but that was redundant

People often talk about a Web Surfing 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 number. The message then gets sent translated into a secret code specific to one out of 15 toasters and saved on that toaster. Up to 100 messages can be saved in cache and printed in any order. Simple symbols can be sent as well with the 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 be sent around the world and then eaten. Remember, professional spies delete their cache first.

       Sorry, but this isn't any good. The redundant idea made sense; this one's just scrambling to hold on.
