What Is This, The iMicro?

Through Eolake's Eyes - What Is This, The iMicro?

by , 2:30 PM EDT, October 5th, 2000

In our series on Apple-inspired design, we have the Sharp R-120DK, also called the Half Pint (I hope it holds more than half a pint, but OK, the name is cute) microwave oven.

It took a bit of applied image editing to make a demonstration picture showing this, because Sharp's site does some tricky things with Java scripting (or whatever) that does not allow seeing all the colors at one time. But TMO readers deserve the clear picture, so we made one.

At least they did not call it the "iMicro". (We still have not finished laughing at Compaq naming their Internet computer "iPaq". Good grief! Can you get less original if you try?)

Thanks to Eric White for the tip. Send observations to us, there's a lot of funny stuff out there.
