Amazon Dash - why not a smartphone

When I first heard about the Amazon Dash venture I thought that it might be relevant to older consumers. After a bit of consideration I am not so sure.

Here are a couple of photos from the web site. Looks like it is the younger mum as the target audience.

What does it do. Simply say it or scan it (the thing you want to buy) and it is added to your shopping list from anywhere in your home.

I am sure there is some devious reason for not creating an app to do this rather than dedicated hardware. The rationale escapes me. Still it is an interesting idea. Dick Stroud
