Keurig Will Use DRM In New Coffee Maker To Lock Out Refill Market.

Get ready for reverse engineering coffee pods.

  1. And then, from the other side…http://geekbeat.tv/use-k-cups-with-any-coffee-maker-with-the-k-pod/

  2. Somehow I think our Keurig 1.0 will still work on unlicensed brands.

    But what hacking is all about is to get Keurig 2.0 to work with unlicensed brands!!!
