On Tuesday, Amazon announced Amazon Dash for Amazon Prime members.

They’re tiny little sticker things with a button on them that come branded with various household products  Tide detergent, for instance, or Gatorade.

The idea is that you put ’em in your pantry, or your laundry room, they connect through your wifi network at home, and if you need a re-supply, you just push the button and presto, order made.
