A solid choice.
See that you have enough (!) high class freshly roasted coffee-beans ready together when putting the machine under the christmas tree - and let us know, how it all worked out.

Congrats on the machine and grinder, you should be very happy.

UH, on a side note, I will skip the S.Jobs lecture.

The next sorry mistake on your side.
As you have certainly missed by skipping the lecture the best part in life - to learn something really important from a truly wise man.

I am very careful about who I consider to be a wise man and who I choose to listen to the views of.

at one time I am sure that many thought Hitler was a wise man and that his opinions were worth listening to but history has proven otherwise.

While Steve Jobs is in no way at all comparable to this example I used the above to make the point that not all view need be listened to and  Mr Jobs is one I choose to not listen to.

I feel the choice I have made is one of discernment and I will not be intimidated to do otherwise.

discernment is the better part of wisdom.


to the OP I'm sorry this happened and my comments to this side matter are done

personal attacks are against the rules of the forum

The most disgusting comparison Hitler to Steve Jobs I ever read - no sober man could ever imagine that...
... oh well... word are missing.

 - disgusting is a to mild word for your absolutely horrible quotation.
You may be a senior member or whatever big man - but you put this site in shame. On an international level. Sad...

Maybe poor choice of analogy here with an ultra-sensitive (for good reason) topic.  Your point, however, is valid.

Maybe not my place and certainly to be taken in the good faith that it is given.  If you want to make friends here, tread more carefully or you will find yourself on the receiving end more than you'd like.  Unless you like the finger pointed at you (as is often the case on online forums).
