|A nice hot cup of "screw you" from Keurig--angela n./Foter|
But I never expected that DRM would start to invade even the non-digital world.
Enter Keurig's application for a patent for a coffee machine that will refuse to work with genetic "pods" of ground coffee. That's right. Keurig is DRMing coffee pods. Thus propping up yet another irrational market like computer printers that sell below cost so they can screw you over the price of proprietary ink cartridges.
Coincidentally I was looking at replacing my hard-to-clean Keurig with a plain old drip filter by Mr Coffee (they have one that makes "lattes"). And I think this has just sealed the deal.
