Amazon Dash

Update: according to Mashable the dash is not a joke. http://mashable.com/2015/03/31/amazon-dash-button/?utm_cid=mash-com-fb-main-link

Today Amazon announced a new device for Amazon prime members. They call it Amazon dash and its a little device that can be mounted by your most used products so they can be refilled when you start to run low. One of the example they use in the video is laundry detergent. You put the device by the washer and when you run low on Tied then just hit the button and it puts a order in on your Amazon account for Tied.

Now with tomorrow being April 1st this could just be an April fools joke. But if it is it seems real. The only thing that makes me feel like it might be a joke is that it’s only available for Prime members and its free. Now this would not be the first time they have had a device with a special offer for Prime members. The Fire TV had a different price if you were a Prime member or not. Though this would be the first device you can only get if you are a prime member.

I hope it’s real but I’m not sure. If you are a Prime member you can request to get a Amazon Dash at https://www.amazon.com/oc/dash-button?reqInv=1.

Amazon Music a Quick Look

Well it seems the New York Times was right the other day when they said that Amazon was close to launching a music streaming service and today they did just that. So like I said the other day I would take a look at the service and I did.

Like the New York Times article said the service docent have a lot of music but I was able to find stuff I like right away. Just like Spotify they have a playlist section and you can make your own as well. You can even download songs that are marked prime to your devices so you can listen when you are offline. I took some screen shots of the iPhone app if you have the Amazon music app and have prime all you have to do is upgrade the app and if you don’t have the app already just get it here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/amazon-music/id510855668?mt=8
