Amazon Prepares to Launch its Own Shopping Channel
Last night, with just a few clicks of an Amazon Fire TV Stick remote, I bought a Hershey’s Halloween Snack Size Assortment 50-Count bag of candy via my TV screen, for delivery to my house — without touching my phone or computer. This morning, the Amazon.com-powered TV interface was offering a Fitbit Charge for purchase in the same way, perhaps to help work off those extra calories. Is this all part of Amazon’s master plan? The answer is yes, but in a much bigger way than one person’s candy and exercise habits.
