Amazon Dash Button

Has anyone used this Amazon Dash Button service yet.

It strikes me as a somewhat curious service considering the potentially large variety of different items people buy on a weekly/monthly basis.

With kiddies' curious little fingers around, these devices are best not stuck to the front of the washing machine as in the advert.

Re: Amazon Dash Button

I saw it advertised on the banner on the site a while back so went to find out more, then I thought how stupid and wasteful it was. I mean is anyone 'that' lazy, I know I'm a bit of a sloth but really.

Also, your cat could end up ordering you teabag or detergent so a bit silly if you ask me.

Re: Amazon Dash Button

I saw this whacky idea years ago and quite frankly i found myself thinking it was stupid back then. So you press a simple button to reorder something... and what happens if your weekly shop has around 60 things in it? - You really want 60 odd buttons?

Lets suppose they have a 7up button. How does it know I want a bottle or can? Even if I have a preset choice, thats not very convenient if i want a different option for once. What about security? We're always being reminded of how important that is online these days... but apparently a guest can just come into your home and order you several hundred quids worth of stuff without so much as a password.

Nice idea in fairy tale land but in reality it's going to be a pain. I'll avoid this one.

My 18 month old sons love of buttons on the washing machine would be a problem for me. Nice idea but would definatetly need some kind of confirmation via mobile or something like that.

Re: Amazon Dash Button

Yep, like you i got my 17 month old boy too.. and just like yours, he loves buttons. OMG he won't leave the canon printer alone... or the TV power button...  We had to tape shut the paper inlet tray on the printer cos he kept getting violent with it...
