As if the Amazon’s one-click ordering wasn’t
scary amazing enough, there are now Dash Buttons. What is an Amazon Dash Button you ask. Well, it is a wireless device (Wi-Fi) in the form of a single function button. So, for example if you had a Dash Button for Tide, when you press the button an order will be automatically placed for a bottle of Tide detergent. Scary right? You are really going to have to make sure your kids don’t find these buttons and push them like say… 50 times. Hopefully Amazon has some failsafes in place for accidental or duplicate button pushes.
The Amazon Dash Buttons are initially going to be available with 18 different products such as laundry detergent, shaving razors, coffee, paper towels, and more.
Currently the Amazon Dash Buttons are only for Amazon Prime customers (as an invite) and you can sign up here – amazon.com/dashbutton. If you aren’t an Amazon Prime customer you can try it out for 30-days for free. Not a bad deal as you get free 2-day shipping and more.
