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.
