These consumable lock-in practices should really be legislated against.
Yeah. We have coffee makers incompatible with unauthorized coffee beans, dishwashers incompatible with unauthorized detergent, juicers incompatible with unauthorized juice packs, printers incompatible with unauthorized ink, phones incompatible with unauthorized batteries. It’s unethical, wasteful, environmentally destructive, user hostile and straight-up dystopian. And as long as it’s legally permissible, it’ll keep happening, because it’s profitable.
amazing, I truly enjoyed reading the post. nice hack
also this bob machine is cool, I might get one if I can get the hack board

Goes to show how a little bit of technical skills can save you a lot of $COIN by letting you know when you are getting ripped off.
