Amazon’s Dash Button Lets You Re-order Everyday Stuff At The Press Of A Button


Amazon is all about eliminating as much friction between your wanting a product, and them delivering it to your doorstep; the more seamless and unintrusive the process is, the more likely you are to make the company money. Their latest effort in that field is the Dash Button, which lets you re-order everyday household items by simply pressing the button on a little dongle. Offered by invitation only to Amazon Prime members, the button is setup through the Amazon app, and connects to your WiFi. If you’re doing the laundry and you see you’re running low on detergent for example, simply press it; you’ll then be get a notification on your phone allowing you to either cancel, or continue your order. It’s a smart idea, and comes on the heels of a previous gadget, the Dash, which was a Wifi enabled barcode scanner. We’re not sure how popular that device became, but there’s a feeling Amazon is testing the waters with a lot of these things, and we wouldn’t be surprised if at least some of it eventually stuck as a normal, ubiquitous ordering mechanism amongst shoppers.

Fan Of Reading? Amazon Launches Kindle Unlimited


If you’re on this website reading the words rather than just looking at the pretty pictures, there’s a chance you’re also into reading other stuff. Like, you know, books. Amazon has recently announced the launch of Kindle Unlimited. For $9.99 a month, you’ll have unlimited access to their entire library of digital books, more than 600,000 strong. Additionally, you’ll receive a 3-month membership to Audible, where you have access to yet another library of professionally narrated audiobooks. This works across devices, and not just on the Kindle family of products. That means tablets, cellphones, and even computers.

The kick in the nuts, however, is that if you’re not living in the states, you’re out of luck for the moment. Still, the company claims to have plans to expand the service, so stay tuned.

The Booty Wrap is the World’s Most Useless Article of Clothing

Booty Wrap

I love clothes and accessories just like every other girl, but I think the Booty Wrap is just plain frivolous and unnecessary. The people behind it probably thought they could make a few quick bucks over an article of clothing that has the sole purpose of covering your booty.

Many women tend to tie their jackets or sweatshirts around their waist when they’re wearing a short top or low-rise waist jeans. Or they could just be tired from carrying it around all day. This is where the concept of the Booty Wrap came from: it looks just like a sweatshirt tied around your waist, when in fact it’s just a flat garment with sleeves and pockets.

And while I did say it was unnecessary, it could come in useful sometimes. Like, say, when it’s hot outside and carrying around a sweatshirt becomes too much of a pain. In case you want it, the Booty Wrap is available online from Amazon for $39.99.
