Gadget Friday: Digital Cookbook

by

Scott McGrew:
Scott McGrewAh, the kitchen computer. For years computer makers have been trying to get computers of some sort into the kitchen. The latest attempt is from digital picture frame maker Pandigital, which is offering its $400 “Digital Cookbook.”

While it does have a built in set of recipes, and you can add your own through flash memory (I don’t see my mother pulling that off), it’s not a computer in the truest sense of the word. It’s more of a terminal. It also features an HDTV tuner, so you can watch TV, and of course functions as a digital picture frame as well.

The device is not yet on the market, but will be soon. Some more information here (pdf warning) http://www.pandigital.net/news/Pandigital_Kitchen_TV_Frame_NR_March_2008_FINAL.pdf
