Haft of the Spear found this gem. Which is only funny in the context of this paper “Information Terrorism: Can You Trust Your Toaster?

He said that any home device could be connected with a software prototype to hack a computer. “I read a senior scientist from Google saying there was no need to be afraid of a toaster at home,” Shalev told The Indian Express. “But as a hacker I came up with a toaster that could actually hack a computer. I call it a ‘Crazy Toaster’.” [Link—>]
