It can’t be promising when Amazon has to confirm that Amazon Dash isn’t a joke

Amazon, always one to push the envelope, took the wraps off of Amazon Dash yesterday. In case you missed it, the latest addition to Amazon’s growing product lineup is a series of oval buttons stamped with the logo of a particular household item that tends to need replenishing on a frequent basis.

For instance, say you’re running low on Tide. Instead of making a mental note to buy more detergent, you can simply press the button on your Tide Amazon Dash widget whereupon it will send a message, via Wi-Fi, to your Amazon mobile shopping app confirming that  an order has been placed. Of course, users can pre-determine the quantities they want delivered.

There are plenty of reasons to question Nolan’s script, and Screen Junkies does just that in the following clip. However, you shouldn’t watch if you haven’t seen Interstellar just yet, as the “honest” trailer is filled with spoilers that will give many things away. More →

Your Xbox One might be costing you hundreds of dollars a year – here are the details

It means you’ll never be more than a few seconds away from jumping back into Halo 5 or Forza Horizon 2. In fact, with the Xbox One, it’s as simple as saying the phrase “Xbox on”… but there is a downside.

Last week, Noah Horowitz of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) published a piece on his blog which claims that Microsoft is costing Xbox One owners hundreds of millions of dollars every year by leaving the Instant-On power mode as the default power mode out of the box. More →
