Amazon announces Dash barcode scanner, expands e-commerce versatility

Amazon has announced the release of a new LED barcode scanner, entitled Dash. Offering the ability to scan household objects and groceries, the aim of Dash is to facilitate replenishing stock within one's home by scanning existing products to order replacements. Users can scan or verbally dictate what is desired to be purchased, with Dash featuring a simplistic setup and sturdy design. Those interested can sign up through Amazon for a free Dash gadget, currently by invitation only.



Automatic app for Android improves driving efficiency when paired with Automatic hardware

The Automatic Smart Driving Assistant app has gained compatibility with Android phones, after a prolonged beta-access-only period. Allowing users to view a digital log of fuel efficiency, trip costs, and driving habits, the Android app generates statistical information based from its conductive Automatic Link vehicle diagnostic hardware, which plugs into a car's diagnostic port. Automatic can store GPS locations, download and decode onboard diagnostic trouble codes, and assign a Driving Score. The Automatic Link hardware dongle is priced at $100, with the Automatic Android app free to download.
