If TI made a microwave...
« on: November 22, 2010, 06:45:21 pm »
A quote from the netham45 jailbreak microwave topic:
More like burnt to a crisp meals.
The number of house fires will go up dramatically, and the majority will have been started by overheating microwaves.
Speaking of which, good thing the TI-OS programmers haven't been programming microwaves

What would happen?

I believe this was in reference to overclocking, but I'll give it my best shot.

1. It would have a run indicator always running.
2. When the microwave turns off, only the light goes off, and it makes no noise, but in reality, the microwave is still running.
3. Errors would automatically abort the current meal with no chance to correct them, then lock the meal inside the microwave because the meal could be radiocative.
4. The microwave is upgradable to use the new MircowavePrintTM, or MP for short, to make it really difficult to tell the microwave to run for 30 seconds.
5.  All times must be put in as some function of a quadratic equation.  (Quadratic solver not included, and must be re-programmed each time due to memory issues.)

6. Cooking times would be entered using RPS (Reverse Polish Sausage) Notation inside of the quadratic solver.

If TI made a microwave we would hack it in less than a day.
I'm waiting for someone to do a calc Farmville. Maybe one day I'll do it!

7.  Despite being a microwave, it would have overheating issues.  :o

8. The microwave will reset every few hours by its own error.

It would fit with bad user interface, though... And I'm positive there are RPN programs for 83+/84+'s.
But yeah, HP would probably be more likely to use RPS.

10. Microwaving a meal is really long, unless you use assembly.

13. because it is a handheld, there is no protection to prevent the things around your meal(fruits, vegetables, hamsters, etc) from heating up and exploding.
14. also because it is a handheld, it requires a car battery to operate.

15. If it crashes, all of the cooking presets are lost.
16. It draws too much current, making the battery explode.
17. TI tries to make money by selling an emulator of the microwave.
18. It has way more RAM than a microwave deserves.
19. It has a monochrome screen, while the competitors are coming out with color models.
20. It includes completely useless presets loaded on to it, taking up most of the memory. When the microwave resets, the user must delete them again

21. Fortunately they left this buffer overflow in the grill function, thanks to it we can play DDR with the buttons.
