Ordering stuff on Amazon changed the way we shop, and makes life much better to deal with, especially if you live in a big city. Need something but don’t feel like taking two subways and a cross-town bus to get it? Order it on Amazon. It’ll be there in two days, free shipping, if you’ve got Amazon Prime. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, what the hell are you doing with your life?
Even though Amazon Drone Delivery is years away, to the point where the company has had to test their Drones in Canada to avoid pesky US laws, they still want to change the way you order things once again, and they’ve come up with quite possibly the coolest and simultaneously laziest way to order things: The Amazon Dash Button.

What is it? It’s a button. Do I need to explain how buttons work? Hopefully not. All you have to do is push it and, poof, the item you want is on its way.
You can sign up for the service here if you’re an Amazon Prime customer. As of right now, it’s an invitation-only service, but if you get invited, you can choose from tons of items that you might reuse frequently ranging from laundry detergent and toilet paper, to Gatorade and Kraft Mac and Cheese with Spongebob Shapes. Then all you have to do is sync the button via WiFi to your Amazon app, and once you push the button, your order is on it’s way.
This definitely seems like a product to keep out of reach of your children. I definitely would’ve pushed this about a hundred times as a little kid, and my Mom would have whooped my ass when crates upon crates of Clorox Wipes would have showed up at the house. She would’ve whooped me double when the credit card bill came.
Pretty cool concept, though. If they ever expand the products to include Kleenex Tissues and Jergens Hand Lotion, I’ll never have to leave the house again. Don’t wait up, I’ve got a hot date in my bedroom..
