History repeats…Is it just me, or are you thinking :CueCat without a tail about this personal scanner. Where will Amazon keep the information the Dash scans?
“A built-in barcode scanner and microphone allow one to quickly add items to an AmazonFresh shopping list, the company’s delivery service currently in trial mode for shoppers in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Just to describe how that works — in case it’s not quite apparent — two little buttons on the device engage its barcode-scanning and voice-recognition capabilities. The device itself connects up to one’s home Wi-Fi network to enable the voice search and its put-items-on-list capabilities: You just have to talk, or point, your way to a brand-new shopping list.
