@mOONmOON how dare you imply their editorial content is only to get the sale, and they will turn around and do everything they railed against the next day to sell moar stuff… what do you think this is… politics???
“Your morning coffee is dependent on the continued solvency and benevolence of Keurig. You want another hit, you gotta go crawling to the K-Man.” << This is not ENTIRELY accurate. There’s already non-keurig k-cups available. The Dazbog coffee I like to drink is not official k-cup. Of course, if Keurig fails for a reason other than running out of their revenue stream of licensed k-cups because the knockoffs are too good, there may not be a whole lot of market for the knockoffs either.
Also, Dazbog has far more varieties available in loose coffee beans than they do in k-cups, so this would be more flexible.
What’s the write-up referring to when talking about the nook? I have one, it uses Google play. I don’t need anything from Barnes and noble, that I know of. I hardly ever use it now. Still curious though. What am I missing?
@RiotDemon There were originally Nook tablets, and the Nook Color, but the tablets switched over to being customized versions of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series.
As far as I know, the Nook e-reader is still around.
@dashcloud that must of been after I got mine. Mine was a gift, and opened, and played with, by the time I actually got it, so I couldn’t return it. When I got it, it was not loaded with the play store. It only had the nook store which was awful for apps. I was so happy when they added play. I kinda forgot about that.
@RiotDemon The Nook is still around, the e reader and the Samsung tablets. You can still buy them new and they still work at the store. I have no idea what this talk is about except there was a Family Guy joke about the Nook once, and this site has an Amazon connection.
@RiotDemon There were 3 Nook tablets: the Nook Color (first), Nook Tablet (2nd) and then the Nook HD (7 inch) and HD+ (9 inch).
We have 3 HD+ tablets running Cyanogenmod (version of Android) that sit idle most of the year. When traveling, we load them up with movies and tv shows as well as having access to the Kindle and Nook online bookstores. They work great keeping the kids entertained on long trips where we don’t have access to WiFi.
Because the HD+ (and HD, I presume) take micro SD cards you can take additional videos along. The tablets don’t have cameras, bluetooth or GPS so they’re really limited in what they can do. And they have a proprietary power connector but cables are cheap on eBay.
The HD+ is 1920x1080 so it’s great for reading or watching videos. Probably not so great for playing games anymore.
The modern version would be to get a Kindle cheaply and either use the Google Play Store or replace the Kindle software with a more open Android version.
Cleaning these things sucks ass.
And … I will put my k-cup brewed cuppa up against yours any time. I can count on one hand the number of truly bad cups of coffee I’ve ever had with my Keurig. Coffee elsewhere? Oh, the humanity!
@jaburg As someone who’s sucked ass (long story, don’t ask) and cleaned a coffee maker, I can tell you with authority that I’d rather clean a coffeemaker. Unless you were referring euphemistically to the act of “cleaning the coffeemaker” which I’ve also partaken in ('nother long story) in which case I’d rather suck ass.
The K folks have sold a refillable cup into which you place your favorite ground coffee. If you can find the refillable container, that method offers a sizable savings and keeps some plastic out of the trash.
I use the Krups coffee maker I bought here and if I add one(1) scoop of coffee and pour one(1) cup of water into it,the darn thing makes one (1) cup of coffee. The old Krups can make two,three,four,etc cups because we work together,I do the thinking and Old Krups does the brewing.
I’ll stick with my freshly ground beans prepared via French press (reheated a few hours later still tastes better than Keurig) or Walkure pour over (best tasting coffee I’ve ever prepared). The only “waste” for either is the water I use to clean them.
Your whole diatribe is based on people buying prepacked pods when as you know you can buy the k pods and fill them yourself with whatever brand you want, so all that hype is bullshit and we both know it …
I put 7 K-Cups a week into the one bag of trash that my family throws away each week. I don’t think those 7 KCups added to the bag of trash I’m already throwing out will make that much of a difference. Besides, our family recycles more than anyone in our neighborhood.
If I had an extra bag or 10 filled with KCups that I discarded each week, I’d understand. But my Keurig usage isn’t adding more bags to our landfill.
@RiotDemon Must have had a lazy postman. It was delivered a few days later. I have had trouble with FedEx sending to PO in the past. Guess there is some resentment with the process. I have the coffee maker, it works great. Glad I bought it.
@k5sat By the way, my two K-cup makers are history. The coffee stinks. Literally stinks. Cleaning did not help. Just foul smelling coffee from the K-cups. Done with those forever. I suspect the water was not hot enough to kill whatever was growing inside.
Mine came today. I understand that it is a refurb, but it was dirty! One of the filter cups has a place in it like it was dropped or someone/something chewed on it. I’ve been happy with most of my Meh purchases, but definitely NOT this one.
Mine came, PO did not want to deliver, I suspect since it originated with FedEx. PO did deliver, no explanation for the prior refusal. The coffee maker works great. Wish I had bought two. Very small footprint, I have a camper and this will travel. Goodby to my two old Keurigs. Anyone else notice a foul odor from the Keurigs coffee? Cleaning did not fix the Keurigs. I suspect the water no longer got hot enough to kill whatever was growing inside. Whatever it was, it laughed when I ran vinegar through it.
