"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?"

    Which shitty french press are you getting?

    Bon Jour. Purchased around 1996. I even have three of the four glass cups it came with and all the cork coasters. None of the plastic stirrers though.

    My complaints:
    1) grounds get stuck between metal disk and the mesh. To clean requires unscrewing.
    2) grounds lodged at the bottom and I need to scoop them out, rather than merely dump, to get them into my compost bin.
    3) the coffee is OK, but not awesome.
