  • Ten minutes after the shopper walks out the door, the app charges a credit card and provides a digital receipt.
  • This is the first day that Amazon’s new checkout-less convenience store, Amazon Go, is open to the public, and shopping is even easier than online.
  • The convenience-style shop opened to Amazon employees in December 2016 in a test phase.
  • To start shopping, customers must scan an Amazon Go smartphone app and pass through a gated turnstile.
  • A single Amazon delivery truck drives through a town and drops off twenty packages to people who have ordered something online.
  • It is our fault, we should all shop at Amazon, maybe when the economy completely collapses we can throw politicians in jail!!!
  • 'In case you haven't noticed, giant businesses like Amazon pay little tax.' Because they re-invest their revenue and don't pay dividends to shareholders.
  • I don't think people want to return to elevator operators and doormen.

  • I wonder if Amazon is working on a scheme whereby it could be charged the tax it owes without having to deal with any corporeal IRS types?
  • If you don’t like it, don’t shop there.
  • A single Amazon delivery truck drives through a town and drops off twenty packages to people who have ordered something online.
  • At my local supermarket with about a dozen scan as you shop checkouts, you can usually walk straight up to a payment terminal without queueing, even at quite busy times.
  • "lots of people enjoy cashier work and find it fulfilling..." what planet do you come from?
