Just realized

My new K-R is waiting in Knoxville UPS to be sent out to arrive here to Nashville delivery tomorrow. I am already disappointed with it as I have searched and searched and for the life of me can not locate where it states it will make me coffee. With that said I may have to return it or send it in for repair so it will make me a nice cup of coffee.

Good question, perhaps we need to have someone create a firmware update that will allow us to program the Green Button to make a nice hot cup of coffee.

Also, for no particular reason:

Such standards of consistent enforcement of rules are an inspiration to strive for.

Frankly, I am quite disappointed with my K-r. I purchased it as "body only." Yet when I look through the viewfinder, all I see is a blur. I had to work for days to find the setting that allows me to click the shutter.

But I CAN click the shutter now... So why are ALL of my pictures so "soft?"

If a "lense" is so all fired necessary, why do they sell it without one and then even let me click the shutter? They don't sell cars without steering wheels do they? Sure I can buy a fancier steering wheel or a nice cover, etc., but it seems that paying "extra" to get a steering wheel at all is, well... a scam. I spend all this money and I can't even take in focus pictures?

And what's worse is that now I have dust on my sensor.

(blah blah woof) woof!

You misunderstood... the Kr now comes in a coffee-coloured version, so that when the ad says you can get it IN coffee . . .

Well now we must get them for false advertisement. A side note my K-R has now departed Knoxville on its way to Nashville.

Yes, but do you really want to go into a Starbucks and see a K5 on their merchandise shelf?

Not only that, but drinking Starbucks coffee can cause your eyes to front focus, not to mention stains on your sensor.

After I have spent some time with the K-R and attempting to locate the different settings it may actually have a make me coffee function and I just have not located it as of yet.
