Default Customers that bought 400.00 juicer discover they can juice items by hand for free

Yes, this was a big thing in the tech industry recently. I'm still not sure why it had to be hooked up to broadband.

People seriously bought a $400 juicer that only juices items that have already been juiced?

Juicero’s CEO, Jeff Dunn, who over took the position in November, posted a response on Medium today arguing that “The value of Juicero is more than a glass of cold-pressed juice. Much more.”


He goes on to outline two scenarios where Juicero would be valuable. One involves someone drinking juice, the other involves someone getting a notification to remind them to drink juice before their juice packs expire and their internet-connected juicer refuses to press them.

The people that bought that thing were idiots anyway. You could pay $50 dollars for a juicer and it could still juice vegetables that aren't pre-cut and juiced.

I have been following this on the Gizmodo blogs. I love this story so much. The attempts to justify the juicer are so bad, they are great.

I see the company is still in business selling it. How on earth are they able to afford to give everyone $400.00 back for the machine? They must've reaped up mass load profits from the juice packets they sell exclusively to people who own the Juicero.

Unless there was a thread dedicated to steroids... Has this thread seen the highest use of the word "juice" in SHHype history?

The WWE threads. Plenty of juicing talk over the years I would expect.

I haven't seen this much use of the word since "The People vs. OJ Simpson".

Nobody except me came to the Juice Newton thread I started in 2009.

Only the poor and unrich would make juice by hand.

Who thinks a $400 juicer is a good idea? And can they give me some money since they have more of it than they know what to do with it?
