In an episode of Top Chef Masters, Wylie Dufresne of WD-50 made slow-cooked eggs using an “immersion circulator”, and the judges went wild for them. One of them said he’s never had an egg like that, which is a bit embarrasing given that he is a food critic. According to this article written March of 2007, it was all the rage then already.
In fact, the Japanese have been slow-cooking eggs for hundreds of years in hotsprings. It’s called “Onsen” eggs. Similar eggs are served at some Japanese ramen noodle restaurants, such as Ramen Setagaya. When I saw Dufresne cook it on Top Chef, I didn’t make the connection at first because they made it sound so novel and high-tech. A friend of mine pointed it out to me that it’s just Onsen eggs.

We (i.e. the creators of AllLookSame.com) developed a series of iPhone apps for preschool kids. (My wife developed the characters and I did the coding.) Our own 4-year old daughter has been enjoying them. They are now available on Apple's App Store. You can search for "bitskis" on your iPhone, or visit the official website at bitskis.com.
It's great for parents when they are traveling with kids (in a car, doctor's office, waiting for food at a restaurant, etc..). If you have kids and own an iPhone, please check it out. It's $2.
