Keurig’s newest coffee makers will be designed to only work with Keurig kcups. Keurig (and their parent company Green Mountain Roasters) appear to be conspiring to block the competition. The patent Keurig had on kcups ran out in 2012, leading to lots of competitors products.
I own a Keurig 1.0, so I am not directly affected, but one day my brewer will die. I’m assuming workarounds will be discovered to disable this DRM move, but is this the way things are headed?
(This seems like a topic ripe for debate, but being coffee-centric would fit as easily in CS)
