Can't surf, won't surf.

From the "Why" files: Apparently, some bright spark at NCR Knowledge Lab has developed a microwave oven that has a door with a built-in touch-sensitive computer screen and barcode reader, so you can check your bank balance, do some e-shopping and surf the Internet, all while heating up a frozen lasagne.

Great idea (actually, it sounds pretty pointless but let’s just assume that it’s a great idea) but if the web download times aren’t any faster than they are for Financial Director’s own steam-driven 486 PCs then that lasagne is going to be carbon before you can access www.tesco.co.uk.
