Wireless Charging Will Get Decided by a Coffee Cup

PowermatLanding3

Over at the The Verge there's talk of yet another competing standard being decided by yes - a coffee cup. Back in the day there was both RF and Wi-Fi on laptops - competing standards of wireless networking ultimately decided when Starbucks rolled out Wi-Fi nationwide to 2000+ coffee shops. Now there's another standard at war - wireless charging. We've seen this new wireless charging already being tested in Boston Starbucks, and we know if they roll it out nationwide yet again the PMA (Power Matters Alliance) will probably win over the other wireless charging formats. Right now you can use the Powermat at some Starbucks and it's presence alone made us curious about wireless charging for the first time. 

Who do you think will win? We'd put our money on whoever Starbucks backs, and right now that looks like the Powermat.

Coffee Week on NPR

Nprcoffee custom acc260aa477e63d9aee9c24e230fe398d3bb329d s40

In case you missed coffee week on NPR we'd like to bring it to your attention. Packed with interesting articles ranging from Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians Drinking Coffee to masterful Japanese mug art. Make sure and check it out - our favorite is probably the foam kitty crawling out of a coffee mug. We're suckers for cats and coffee.

Update:Our forums has a detailed post with all the details on each of the articles from Coffee Week on NPR.

Espresso Manifesto Short Animated Film by Shaun Pitz

Espressomanifesto

Over at Kickstarter Shaun Pitz is working very hard to show the battle line between coffee and espresso in a new short film.

 "Espresso Manifesto is a seven minute animated film that reconsiders the origin of coffee through a colorful world of fantasy and science fiction.  A mysterious cafe set beside an ocean of grass, a silent observer, metallic serpents, rolling robots, and one lingering question: Why is coffee just so delicious? The answer may be more sinister than you think. "

Shaun works in a coffee shop by day and has been animating and creating the film at night. We're thinking given the trailer a bit Shaun has been a bit hopped up on espresso and coffee the entire time.

Caribou Coffee Won't Do In Store Coffee Shops at JCPenney

Chasteen JC+penny 012612 298

Well JCPenney can't even catch a coffee break from Caribou Coffee. Caribou had announced a potential partnership about six months ago, but now it's not so interested in being in the in store coffee brand for JCPenney. We thought the cafe idea and in store coffee would have made a nice splash for JCPenney customers. Perhaps they can attract another brand?
