When I was growing up we had a Soda-stream machine and I thought that was pretty cool. The Keurig Kold takes that concept to a whole new level!
Just like a Nespresso machine (Or Keurig Coffee Machine) you buy capsules. You insert the capsule and out comes your drink. It is as simple as that. Except this time, the drinks are cold and possibly carbonated.
What sets the Keurig Kold apart is actually their licensing agreements. (Something I never thought I’d say) They have deals in place with brands of drink so that you can create your own Coke Zero or obscure iced tea.
At almost US$400 this thing isn’t cheap but just like the Nespresso machines, I doubt that is their target market anyway.
If Keurig is listening, I’d love a test device thrown my way. I promise I’ll give it back.
I have an iPhone 6 as well as a really outdated iPad 3. I don’t use my iPad that much so I don’t mind that it is a little slower. It is just a big Twitter machine to me.
Whilst playing around with a few content blockers on my iPhone, I thought I would see how they work on my iPad. As it turns out, none of them would install. Each one simply said “this device is not supported.”
I did a little bit of digging around and it looks like content blocking has been limited to 64-bit devices (iPhone 5S and later) for performance reasons.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t install one, it just means it will be a lot harder! You’ll probably have to find an open source one on GitHub and then download xCode and compile and side load it yourself. I’ll have a look at this and post a tutorial if it is feasible.
And after all that effort, you could possibly slow down your browsing even more by overloading your device’s old 32-bit processor.
I guess this is Apple’s not so subtle hint to upgrade…
