Google is famous for having fun on April Fools Day by announcing some ridiculous new fake products, so when Amazon revealed “Dash” late yesterday, it almost seemed like a joke. Has consumerism gotten to a point that we will install physical buttons in our homes to place orders for designated products with a simple press? This has to be some sort of meta satire about consumption, doesn’t it? Apparently not. The “Dash Button” (featured in the video below) is a real thing, and will turn your home into a real-life Amazon product page. Because who hasn’t been waiting for that to happen ... Discuss
