More product synergy: Computer + Breakfast

This kind of art project makes me think that in a deeper sense, technology products are no different than food. Last year’s hot PDA is like last week’s egg-salad sandwich, it’ll just do. Even if you spend $1,000 on a PC, it’s just as transient as other consumables, but we (or at least I) fool ourselves (or I fool myself) into believing that our next computer purchase will last—to justify the price. Like spring or relationships, love for a computer is strongest when you first take it out of the box. Love fades.

Also the squares in a waffle iron are totally keyboard-key-shaped, so I bet that was easy for the artist to make.
