An important technological milestone

Many people have noted that this is the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11- but there is another important anniversary this year, one that strikes every household in the civilized world: this is the 100th anniversary of The Toaster ! This milestone in civilization will be honored at this year's Comic-Con International by the introduction of the Darth Vader toaster "The device is clad in a black plastic mould that resembles Darth Vader's infamous mask. But that's not all. As it toasts your morning slice of bread, the gadget burns an image of the everyone's favourite Dark Lord of the Sith on to the side."

Laugh all you like- if I were 8 years old, I'd be making my parents' lives a living hell until I got one.
