Way back on April 1st, Amazon teased a product so strange and so obviously dangerous, a lot of folks wondered whether it was an April Fools' prank. It wasn't, and now that gadget is available for you to buy.
Amazon's latest product isn't necessarily dangerous to your health, but it is dangerous for your wallet.
Amazon has just started rolling out its revolutionary Dash button. This tiny, USB-sized button takes one-click shopping to the next level. It only costs $5 and it can bring you all of the supplies you run out of most at home.
With the Dash button, you can order things like Huggies, Tide, Bounty, Gillette, Olay, Glad, Clorox wipes, Cottonelle, Gerber Formula, Larabar, Kraft Mac and Cheese, Maxwell House Coffee, Gatorade, Izze, Smartwater, L’Oreal Paris and Wellpet Pet Food with the click of a button.
The Dash button is synced to your Amazon account so as soon as you press the button, an order is placed immediately and shipped to your home address in a flash. You won't have to remember to order it online or pick it up at the grocery store. With the Dash button, you just have to press it and go about the rest of your day.
There is even some speculation that Amazon plans to equip popular home appliance brands with the "Dash Replacement Service." You'll be able to order laundry detergent straight from your washing machine, or Brita filters straight from the pitcher.
We think this idea is brilliant, but what do you think?
Is the Dash button just another way to blow your hard-earned cash or is it a great way to stay ahead of errands? Tell me what you think by leaving a note in the comments section below.
