Amazon Dash and the Internet of things thing

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.

I get the whole “Internet of things” thing but … I just don’t know.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible.
