Amazon is pushing this new thing called Amazon Key. This is the link to their official lander for it:
So for the "small" price of having:
- An ongoing subscription to Amazon Prime
- The purchase of their new door locks controlled by their app
- And their smart Cloud Cam so you and they can be watching your front door when you unlock it from anywhere
I'm of the opinion that this isn't one of those moves that's helpful, but to condition us to these ideas and shift what's acceptable. We know that the CIA gave Amazon $600,000 to buy the Washington Post that has done nothing but spew propaganda since. That may have colored my view of this, and I think it will do that to others too.
But I think the trendy, hipster, early adopters and the silicon valley types will eat it up too.
I can't imagine that many packages get stolen that it warrants this kind of product and promotion either. I'm not into it. I'm more suspicious about it with negative excitement levels. The CSS for that lander is so bad too.
