All modern inventions have one thing in common: They fix things. They spot a dilemma, figure out what's wrong and make it right so we can go on living a beautiful and joyous life. Take the musical microwave, for instance. It eliminates the problem of enduring annoying beeps. Dilemma: Annoying beeps when food is ready. Solution: A microwave that plays music instead of beeps.
The official name is BGH Quick Chef Music microwave. It comes equipped with a USB port so you can load your own playlist. And when that Orville Redenbacher is ready, the musical microwave (mucrowave?) plays your favorite song to alert you. BGH released a thousand musical microwaves to launch the product. They sold out in a week. There's a commercial production planned for 2012. You should definitely back-order two and send us one.
You can't always reinvent the wheel, but you can make it sing.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
