It's a microwave, with a TV and DVD-player built-in.
How long does a microwave TV-dinner(!) take to "cook" anyway? The time it takes most DVDs to play through the mandatory anti-piracy rant and painfully animated menus perhaps...
Then what? You stand there in the kitchen holding a burning hot foil tray to watch the rest of the show? Or you move the food, and the disc to another room, only to watch the anti-piracy and animated menu gumpf all over again.
Granted it is a lovely piece of design. And I do like nicely designed things. Does that make it any better? Just because we can does it mean we should?
