This recessive gene would be removed from the gene pool in one or two iterations of viral infections.
One other thing they could do would be a unique barcode or other machine-readable sequence on each pod, and then have the machine phone home to make sure that the code is valid and hasn't been used before. Any word on whether 2.0 requires an Internet connection?
The great thing about that idea is that slashdot'ers could systematically disable all of the real pods
"Hi, this is Sundeep, umm I mean Jay at Keurig.
We've noticed your cofeemaker is having problems.
If you'll just click on this link, we can do remote troubleshooting for you."
I seem to recall something similar happening on X-Files, Stargate, and Fringe. It didn't turn out so well.
It appears to me like thay are paid shills of the Telecommunications Industry hiding behind "non-profit" "think tanks"
Berin Szoka used to work for the PFF: (from Wikipedia)
The Progress & Freedom Foundation (PFF) was an American market-oriented think tank based in Washington, D.C. that studied the digital revolution and its implications for public policy. Its mission was to educate policymakers, opinion leaders and the public about issues associated with technological change, based on a philosophy of limited government, free markets and individual sovereignty.
PFF was funded in part by the digital media and communication industry.
Brent Skorup works for the Mercatus Center: (From Wikipedia)
Washington Post columnist Al Kamen has described Mercatus as a "staunchly anti-regulatory center funded largely by Koch Industries Inc." Rob Stein, the Democratic strategist, has called it "ground zero for deregulation policy in Washington.” The Wall Street Journal has called the Mercatus Center "the most important think tank you've never heard of."
The Mercatus Center was founded by Rich Fink as the Center for the Study of Market Processes at Rutgers University. After the Koch family provided more than thirty million dollars to George Mason University, the Center moved to George Mason in the mid-1980s before assuming its current name in 1999. The Mercatus Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit and does not receive support from George Mason University or any federal, state or local government, but rather is entirely funded through donations, including some from companies like Koch Industries and ExxonMobil, individual donors and foundations. As of 2011, the Center shows that 58% of its funding comes from foundations, 40% from individuals, and 2% from businesses.
Seems it was much easier back when you had a choice of:
1. You have a dick.
2. You do not have a dick.
You probably meant:
1) You have a dick
a) You want one or more
b) You don't want another
c) You don't use it
d) You take matters into your own hand
e) Yours is kept in a nightstand
2) You do not have a dick
a) You want one or more for Valentines Day
b) You don't want/need one
c) You're having one surgically installed
d) It was removed
e) You don't want one until you're married.
Sorry, but that's just the TIP of the iceberg...

Now new images taken by the http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/mro/ have shown new clues that yes, these RSL do in fact contain flowing water. This comes from two new reports that focused on the minerals left behind by the RSL. While the images didn’t find any signs of salt or water, they did find iron-containing minerals that weren’t found on mountains without RSL."

They could take over Solaris development too...
Oh, yeah, right.
Beta will kill
“We treat all traffic equally, and that has not changed,” a Verizon spokesperson told BGR in an emailed statement. “Many factors can affect the speed a customer’s experiences for a specific site, including, that site’s servers, the way the traffic is routed over the Internet, and other considerations. We are looking into this specific matter, but the company representative was mistaken. We’re going to redouble our representative education efforts on this topic.”
It is still unclear exactly what was causing the issues that Raphael described, but it’s apparently not any form of bandwidth prioritization. Instead, the issue may relate to congestion specific to the Amazon servers or connections that Raphael was testing, but nothing has been confirmed by Amazon.
Looks like it's already out for Ubuntu

A series of Mylar Balloons should be sufficient.
It sounds like you have never tried Gnome 3.x - - it currently does none of what you claim and feels and seems most like MacOS. Heck look at Pearls.
Sure the 3.x started out as change for change sake but at 3.8 or 3.10 it is a pretty vanilla environment that mostly just works.
Ok, how do you hide the top menu bar?
seems pretty easy in xfce
I have a WXGA display on my laptop, screen real-estate is more important than a crummy interface.
I've used adm, vt100, vt220, twm, graphon X terminals, Sun 3's. cde, patriot, gnome everything. Unity is an abomination.
