Apparently you need an iPhone in the kitchen these days.
Top Kitchen Toy? The Cellphone
I'm not buying it. An iPhone as a permanent part of my gadget drawer would leave me with an interesting warranty claim. It would only be a matter of time before I dunked it in boiling water with the pasta, hacked a corner off whilst chopping onions, or otherwise voided the warranty by getting too close to something hot or greasy.
Occasionally I'll drag the laptop into the kitchen, but it's always safely atop the bar, far from wet or dusty hands, and even then I find myself going through a dozen bar towels trying to keep my hands clean before scrolling down a line or two to the next item.
Having said that... going to download BigOven and see if they can convince me otherwise...
