This week on KUT's radio "Texas Standard," we talked about Amazon's $4.95 Dash Button devices, which allow you to order bulk goods via Wi-Fi at the push of a literal branded button, and whether they're a useful device to own.
Earlier in the week, Amazon announced a $20 limited-release AWS button geared toward Internet of Things tinkerers that quickly sold out. In the radio segment, we discuss some of the potential drawbacks to that device.
