"Taking a page out of Lexmark playbook, the Keurig company, famous for it's one-cup coffee making system, now comes with new and improved 100% DRM. Apparently, Keurig is upset over re-usable third-party 'coffee pods' which allow the consumer to escape the Keurig throw-away models which carry a retail price 5% to 25% more. Keurig's CEO, Brian Kelly referred to the move as 'game-changing performance.' Perhaps this will finally be the year of Linux on the Coffe Maker?"

    A good burr grinder can be had for about $50. For another $50 you can get a good Thermos type drip coffee machine, like my Hamilton Beach. These make better coffee then the regular hot plate type machines. You will also save a ton of energy too, as they turn off as soon as the coffee is brewed. On a regular one, the burners consume about 800 watts, so if you leave it on a typical 2 hours a day, it will consume about 1/2 megawatt hours over a year. That is a lot of juice for a fricking coffee machine.

    TI haven't tried SSHing into it yet. :)
