you can get foamy milk with one of those brother thingies, but there is no chance to get something even close to microfoam needed for latte art.  This needs steam.  Properly steamed milk also tastes different and gets a lot sweeter (something about how the fats spread the lactose onto your tongue)

I used to get pretty good microfoam with a cheap Krups machine I had at my office (though the espresso was terrible).  Had to take the stupid easy frothing gadget off first.
