"This $1,500 Toaster Oven Is Everything That's Wrong With Silicon Valley Design"

From FastCo.Design:

Automated yet distracting. Boastful yet mediocre. Confident yet wrong.
I slide a piece of salmon into the June, one of the most advanced ovens ever built. Loaded with a camera, temperature probe, Wi-Fi, and algorithms, it'll cost you $1,500. It required nearly $30 million in venture capital to create. It was the brainchild of the engineer who brought us the iPhone’s camera and Ammunition, the design firm that gave us Beats headphones....

That's just harsh.
