Defeat Keurig's K-Cup DRM with a single piece of tape

Keurig's dumbass coffee-pod DRM tries to prevent your machine from brewing pods that don't come from Keurig, but you can defeat it in seconds with a single piece of tape.

Keurig's system uses a sensor to read something on one little slice of the label on the top of the K-Cup. All you need to do is slice off that little fragment, tape it permanently over the sensor, and your K-Cup machine will brew any pod you load.

Previously, we'd seen vendors break the K-Cup DRM in their products, but this lets you choose from any coffee vendor, not just the few willing to risk a lawsuit.
