"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?"

    The same poor schlep that hauls your garbage out to the curb. You pull them apart as you discard them into your recycling. The Vue pods (Kuerig's new system) have a tab you pull.

    So not a lot of recycling going on?

    Some individuals probably do, especially if they happen to live somewhere that actually picks up recycling, but I'm guessing that percentage is low in office environments.
