When you can't be bothered to walk across the street or drive the mile to your closest superstore, and you just want to order the thing now, immediately, the SHEER NUMBER OF MOUSE CLICKS standing in between you and your 24-pack jumbo rolls of Charmin ultra-strong toilet paper seems insurmountable. Here is what you need: an Amazon Dash button.
These little customized devices are one-click wifi-connected thingamabobs you can stick pretty much anywhere—and with just one touch, it'll automatically re-order the pre-designated item of your choice for you—no smartphone, tablet, computer, or rooting around for your credit card necessary.
