No matter what it looks like, hold the jam

The 'Toastit' is for memory cards, not for English muffins

Boynq

Sorry, Caroline , it's not a real toaster. At least, we don't think it would be a good idea to try to cram an English muffin into one of its slots, much less one that requires delicate handling for a skull-and-crossbones branding.

What it is, however, is a clever design and marketing ploy for a 27-in-1 memory card reader by Boynq. Technabob says the "Toastit" is a USB flash memory reader that will work with Windows and Mac machines. Despite its decidedly utilitarian function, the $30 Toastit does look nice as an accent for the desktop, if not the kitchen counter.
