Ok this is not really "dining out" per se but I thought it was an interesting alternative to cooking your own food away from home. The grill is powered by USB connection. I have no idea how effective it is but it's been said you can cook a hamburger in under 2 minutes. :D

Okay, that is hilarious.

The only thing is... I'm not sure I'd want a grill splattering beef fat near my laptop!!! I wonder if they have an accessory that can be used to cover your laptop. Something like the George Foreman Laptop Nosplatter iCover...?

:lol:

Is IS hilarious! I just realized it's not real... it was an April Fool's joke by ThinkGeek.

However, the idea did inspire this George Foreman creation (which is indeed real):

Karen, maybe move this to Off Topic Banter?

I had actually written "assuming this is for real..." at the start of my last post, and then thought, well, it looks real, so I guess I shouldn't be such a doubter. I will pay better attention to my instincts next time! ;)
