    1st April jokes are coming out? :)

    My worry would be if you have children - they may just press the button repeatedly, bankrupting you.

      They have a safe guard on that, it only orders once.

      "Amazon sends an order alert to your phone, so it's easy to cancel if you change your mind. Unless you elect otherwise, Dash Button responds only to your first press until your order is delivered."

    I honestly can't tell if this is just a very poorly timed product launch, or I'm very gullible.

    Is it just me that thinks this could work out?

      Honestly, I think it's amazing.

      We have a teenager who's always coming or going, forgetting to let us know if we're running low on paper towels, laundry soap, etc. Having her be able to just push a button (and have subsequent clicks be ignored) would make our lives plenty easier.

      This is great for Amazon too, as I normally wouldn't buy things like soap, laundry soap, paper towels there, but I might now.

        Honestly, Amazon is great for house supplies like paper towels, laundry detergent, trash bags, etc.

      I think it could really work great, but what I don't understand is why they wouldn't let you customize whatever you wanted to "replenish" with the button (ie: maybe 7th Generation baby wipes instead of Huggies). Maybe because they demand a certain level of stock commitment from the brands? It would suck to tap the button to then find out they don't sell the product anymore or something.

    This feels very 1940's 'House of the Future' -ish.

    I think it would work at my job, actually... We couldn't figure if it was fake or not.

      Off topic, but if you work at Morgan & Morgan the law firm, just wanted to say, I grew up in central Florida, and fondly remember their TV commercials. "Morgan & Morgan... For the people"

      John Morgan always seemed like a good dude.

    This seems like such a headache, just a silly trinket i'd have to worry about charging since you know the battery will die constantly if connected to wifi.

    It feels... dystopian?

    There is only one retailer you buy from.

    You buy the one product tied to the button.

    You do not question whether the price is the best you can find.

    You push and you receive, thank you for your business.

    Is it just me or did they remove it from the site now?

    This is the kind of thing the 'internet of things' will excel at — single use buttons and switches. If Amazon opens this up as an API then you can incorporate this into all kinds of things. And it will (maybe) be cool.

    Apparently not a joke: http://blogs.wsj.com/personal-technology/2015/03/31/amazons-dash-button-is-not-a-hoax-its-phase-one/

    Why would this be a joke? IMO this is some amazing product design. It does what every Amazon product is secretly aiming to do - make it easier for you to order more from Amazon - but it's not masquerading as something else. It looks like it does one thing very well. I personally can't wait to get one.

    I'm thinking just poorly timed? Im still very suspicious of the timing. The video is cool and the idea is actually pretty good. Seems hard to scale with the specific product labels on the button but overall, it looks like a good idea.

      Agree, but if it is real then it would seem a rather... foolish... time to launch a new product. Even people who really like the service and want to get some units will have to first ask "So, this new service of yours - it's not a joke is it?"

    I guess it's better than loading up the phone in my pocket and pressing rebuy. I definitely trust it more than an automatic subscription. But does everybody buy the same product every time? I try out new "flavors" at least, even if its the same brand.

      I think it depends on the item I guess. Speaking for myself, I pretty much by the same paper towels and toilet paper every time.

    The Internet is jumping off the screen into physical reality. The ultimate antithesis of "flat ui".
