toaster
Last modified: Friday, January 17, 2003 

Originally used to describe outdated or slow hardware (referring to the power of a kitchen toaster), the term is now often used to describe a product that joins various components in one easy-to-use package (referring to the ease of using a kitchen toaster). For example, a video toaster is a desktop video editor that features all the software and hardware needed to create broadcast-quality video in one integrated system. An intranet toaster is an all-in-one server that can be connected to an existing LAN and configured through a Web browser. The term can also refer to both qualities -- easy-to-use but less powerful than other products.
