English Computing Dictionary
◊ TOASTER
toaster
1. The archetypal really stupid {application} for an
{embedded} {microprocessor} controller; often used in comments
that imply that a scheme is inappropriate technology (but see
{elevator controller}). "{DWIM} for an assembler? That'd be
as silly as running {Unix} on your toaster!"
2. A very, very dumb computer. "You could run this program on
any dumb toaster."
See {bitty box}, {Get a real computer!}, {toy}, {beige
toaster}.
3. A {Macintosh}, especially the {Classic Mac}. Some hold
that this is implied by sense 2.
4. A peripheral device. "I bought my box without toasters,
but since then I've added two boards and a second disk drive".
This is not usually to be taken literally but, to show off the
expansion capabilities of the {Risc PC}, {Acorn Computers
Ltd.} built a seven-slice machine (which they called "the
rocket-ship") and installed every imaginable peripheral. In a
spare {drive bay} of the top slice they installed a toaster.
This machine was exhibited at various shows where it attracted
attention by occasionally ejecting a pizza.
