Push to buy: Amazon’s Dash Buttons Turn Your House into a Store
So, what if you’re forgetful and push the button several times?
For some people (like me?) this might be a bad idea. I can see someone having ten boxes of detergent delivered to their door.
Maybe it should come with a mini air horn to alert you when it’s already been ordered. That would keep grandpa and the kids away from it, lol. Or, not.
From the article:
Imagine you’re doing laundry (sorry, it’s not a fun daydream scenario). You notice you’re running low on detergent. You could either make a mental note to pick some up at the store, whip out your phone and place an online order, or, easiest of all, press a button that will automatically send your favorite brand to your doorstep. Amazon’s hoping the last option is the one that gets you excited.
Remember this? I loved this cartoon. And why, because of all the technology.
