You have GOT to be kidding!

With a nod to trinker...

ThinkGeek has a USB-controlled EasyBake oven that fits in a 5.25" bay on your PC. The included USB control software to bake your cakes from the convenience of your computer.

This is a weird, weird world. Who, exactly is the target market for this gadget?

Hmmm... Target demographic would have to be a ... career driven housewife?

Case modders, who get lots of woodie points for unusual (or, better yet, unique) modifications.

I want one!! It's targeted to those of us who enjoy baked goods but are too geeky or lazy to leave our computers long enough to check the oven! :)

It's not real. It was an April Fool's Day joke. Note the negative Geek Points, among other evidence.

That's too bad, because I would have bought one to install in a machine to use as an April Fool's Day joke on my boss next year.

That's a pity--I bet such a device just might sell. :)
