"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?"

    Jesus people, you need a special machine with unique cartridges? Buy coffee, grind it, put it in a French Press, drink, enjoy, and when the caffeine high wears off, laugh your ass all the way to the bank. ("Oh, but the cartridges are so much ***easier*** wowzers!!!!1111elevenety). Go for it then - one of you is born every minute.

    Pfft, you go to the store and BUY coffee? Walk to Colombia, squat some land, grow your own coffee, steal a donkey, harvest it in baskets you wove by hand, grind it between two stones, make pots out of clay, build a fire, brew, drink, enjoy with your new pal John McAfee, pick the grounds out of your teeth, and when the smugness wears off, laugh your ass all the way to the bank. ("Oh, but buying coffee from stores so much ***easier*** wowzers!!!!1111elevenety)

    My lawn - you know what to do.
