Over in the US, Amazon Dash buttons are equal parts amazing technology and useless gimmick. A single button that will deliver specific products to your doorstep is like shopping in the Jetsons’ era. But it would be even better if that product was hot, cheesy pizza, as one hacker imagined.
Just when you thought capitalism had reached its peak, Amazon is announcing the Dash Button. The idea is simple: You push a branded button, and Amazon ships that brand’s products to your home.
