Sharp 'Teacher's Pet' Apple Calculator


Tell you what: bring this in for teacher on the first day of school instead of the usual tired McIntosh — yes, the Woz and Steve Jobs misspelled it back in the day but hey, compost happens when genius is afoot... — and you're money.

From Sharp — you know the drill: "From Sharp people come Sharp products."

Yes, they make spectacular giant flat–screen TVs but in their spare time they like to turn out little objects like this with kawaii written all over them.

From the website:

    The calculator is adorably shaped to resemble an apple.

    It offers an eight-digit LCD screen with large keys for easy use and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division functions.

    Measures 2.8" x 4.5" x 0.5".

$9.96 here.


But wait — there's more.

Turn the calculator over and voila, it's a magnetized green pepper–shaped kitchen timer.

No fooling!

From the website:

    The four-digit timer's easy-to-read display may be set up to 99 minutes and 59 seconds.

    Use the one, three, or five-minute timer keys for steaming vegetables, boiling water, or other quick cooking projects.

I'd say that's plenty for $9.96.
