It has Wi-Fi inside. Wi-Fi setup using an Android or iOS APP. Neat.

amazondashtrojanAmazon, intentionally or otherwise, announced these DASH buttons on March 31, 2015 — just ahead of April Fool’s Day. So many, including I, thought that it was meant to be an April Fool’s joke.

Not so. Appears that Amazon is very serious about them. Cute and clever. Makes sense. Not that we would ever need any. We are kind of better organized. But I have no issues with them, especially as an Amazon shareholder. Very innovative.

The DASH buttons are FREE after the 1st order. Yes, you get the $4.95 back when you click the button for the 1st time. How can YOU lose?

Way to go AMAZON. Am I glad I own Amazon shares? You betcha.

Now if they would combine Trojan orders with same day Drone delivery AMZN shares will get to $1,000/share.

Think about it.

My all time favorite word
(same as that of Thomas J. Watson, Sr.):

THINK.

What is the one thing that a man will pay and arm and a leg for instant gratification …

Immediate access to a condom in a pinch.

No, I am not here talking from experience. Never had to. I have THE gift of the gab!

[Durex is British and I have a lovely Durex-related story. Not about condoms per se
but about the ‘London Rubber Company’ that makes Durex.
I knew the wife of a ‘London Rubber Company’
Board Member

BUT had no idea that they made Durex! I thought they made tires.
She used to ask me to take my pants down! Honest.
She was a private, high end physiotherapist
(who did it for the fun)
and I, with private insurance, was prone to
groin strains from too much cricket. HONEST.] 

Though it has NOT made me rich I am good at coming up with BIG ideas way, way ahead of their time.

I did, while working for IBM (U.K.), invent (to my now DREAD), the every so annoying ‘serial number’ based software validation method!

Yes, that was me in 1978 — 3 years ahead of the PC.

Here is the PROOF. It is all there … in print and at the U.S. Patents office.

Two other BIG ideas way ahead of their time … though they are now everyday items:

1/ Atomic clock-based wristwatches — way back in 1976 (yes, while at IBM).

2/ Computerized Scrabble — in 1978 for my Master’s dissertation, BUT I was foiled BECAUSE we didn’t have GOOD computer-based dictionaries.

Anyhow.

Mark my word.

Amazon or somebody else will make BILLIONS
with Drone delivered condoms — ordered from
an APP that automatically provides the GPS coordinates.

It is beautiful. It can be delivered to a parked car or a boat.

NOT HEAVY.

They can have premium pricing.

$35 more if you want it in the next 15 minutes.

You can even air drop it.

Brilliant.

Yes, I know ….

I have been told it all my life …

What can I say.

It is the cross that I carry, lightly.
