If Kodak made toasters...
They would consistently produce high-quality toast,
provided you took your bread to the store and
waited at least an hour for the results


If Xerox made toasters...
You could toast one-sided or double-sided.
Successive slices would get lighter and lighter.
The toaster would jam your bread for you.


If Radio Shack made toasters...
The staff would sell you a toaster, but not know anything about it.
Or you could buy all the parts to build your own toaster.


If Oracle made toasters...
They'd claim their toaster was compatible with all brands and
styles of bread, but when you got it home you'd discover the Bagel Engine
was still in development, the Croissant Extension was three years away,
and that indeed the whole appliance was just blowing smoke.


If Sun made toasters...
The toast would burn often, but you could get a really good cuppa Java.


Does DEC still make toasters?...
They made good toasters in the '80's didn't they?


If Hewlett-Packard made toasters...
They would market the Reverse Polish Toaster, which takes in toast
and gives you regular bread.


If Tandem made toasters...
You could make toast 24 hours a day, and if a piece got burned
the toaster would automatically toast you a new one.


If Cray made toasters...
They would cost $16 million but would be faster than any
other single-slice toaster in the world.


If IBM made toasters...
They would want one big toaster where people bring bread
to be submitted for overnight toasting. IBM would claim a
worldwide market for five, maybe six toasters.


If The Rand Corporation made toasters...
It would be a large, perfectly smooth and seamless black
cube. Every morning there would be a piece of toast on top of it.
Their service department would have an
unlisted phone number, and the blueprints for the box would
be highly classifiedgovernment documents. The X-Files would have an
episode about it.


If the NSA made toasters...
Your toaster would have a secret trap door that only the NSA
could access in case they needed to get at your toast for reasons of national security.


If Sony made toasters...
It would be the ToastMan, which would be barely larger than
the single piece of bread it is meant to toast, and could be conveniently
attached to your belt.


If Timex made toasters...
They would be cheap and small quartz-crystal wrist toasters
that take a licking and keep on toasting.


If Fisher Price made toasters...
"Baby's First Toaster" would have a hand-crank that you turn
to toast the bread until it pops up like a Jack-in-the-box.


If the Franklin Mint made toasters...
Every month, you would receive another lovely hand-crafted
piece of your authentic reproduction WWI pewter toaster.


If CostCo made toasters...
They'd be really cheap, as long as you bought a six-pack of 'em.


And, of course:

If Microsoft made toasters...
Every time you bought a loaf of bread, you would have to
buy a toaster. You wouldn't have to take the toaster, but you'd still have to
pay for it anyway. Toaster '95 would weigh 15,000 pounds (hence requiring a
reinforced steel countertop), draw enough electricity to power a small
city, take up 95% of the space in your kitchen, would claim to be the first toaster
that lets you control how light or dark you want your toast to be, and would
secretly interrogate your other appliances to find out who made them. Everyone
would hate Microsoft toasters, but nonetheless, would buy them since most of
the good bread only works with their toasters.
If Apple made toasters...
It would do everything the Microsoft toaster does, but years earlier.
