You know, back in our day, we would've imagined a digital cookbook
being some virtual, possibly animated version of... you know, a book with recipes in it. These days kids and their fancy rock and roll cooking shows have taken over, and Belling's new Media Chef digital cookbook -- which looks like a glorified digital photo frame -- actually houses 48 cooking instructional videos from chef Brian Turner for playback on its 8-inch screen. Brian can be harnessed with an included compact remote control, and the unit can also act as a general media player, calendar and photo frame. It retails for £170ish (about $271 US) but we're not sure when.
