What's cooking? Not you

Samsung's Smart Oven takes all the guesswork out of microwaving a meal.

You know how punching in a cook time on a microwave is just too much work? Not only do you have to unwrap your pre-packaged meal, but you have to put it on a plate, and on top of that, you have shut the door. By then, anyone would be exhausted.

Samsung's response: "Dude. We know." Or something like that. But the company is selling the Smart Oven, a combination conventional oven and microwave that reads the bar code on a package of food and knows how long to nuke it.

While this may be a boon to, say, the guy on his 18th straight hour of playing Final Fantasy XII, or the girl glued to her couch for an Arrested Development DVD marathon, it will likely bring a tear to the eyes of foodies everywhere.

But it's not just for people who can't spare 30 minutes to whip up a meal, according to the Web site. It's for people who like to "cook from scratch" too. "From scratch" is interpreted loosely here, as the recipe suggestions range from the potentially delicious to the unfortunate.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
