Who is this even aimed at if schools no longer teach kids how to read analog clocks?
that's funny - I was wondering too - is Jeff Bezos trying to bring back analog clocks?
I think the majority of wall clocks remain analogue. You might disagree, but I feel like most people find analogue clocks to be a lot more attractive. People think of analogue clocks as fancy decor for their house, digital is more for bathrooms or bedside tables.
(I know some Nutanix guys tried it but kept burning out SATA DOMs).
Sata dom? Who the f*** still uses them? Even when I was a c++ coder in automation industry we were phasing out them 3 years ago! Just mainteinance of production stuff.
Btw I see your point. For these applications

The "free" audible with Prime is very limited in scope, you'd have to subscribe to the full Audible to get audiobooks.
That said I drive, like a lot, 2 hours each way to work everyday. And audio books are a big part of what keeps me sane. If I went the audible way then I would be bankrupt pretty quickly.
Libraries are a good place to get audio books, but I still go through them faster than I can get them, though most libraries have online digital checkout options for audio books, so check with your local library on that.
When all else fails I torrent audio books. I belong to a private torrent community that does nothing but audio books. It has come in very handy.
I really wish someone would start a Netflix type audiobook service, and all you can listen to flat rate service.
4 hours of drive! What else you do during that long drive?
I like the idea of a Netflix kind service, but if you look at it Amazon probably covers a huge library of books! I wish Audible had an unlimited book options on a flat rate.
The only issue I see with something like this is now you'll hire security to confirm purchases as people are entering / leaving.
Should be less staff over all, but a bit more police state shopping.
The companies who start moving in this direction are not the same ones who will treat their customers like criminals over the possibility that one item didn't get rung up.
I have worked on projects to try and do warehouses this way, but time and time again, the RFID ends up being just too expensive per tag to make it worth it. We already have the technology to fill a cart with items then as a customer walks out, a gateway over the door can count it all, and bill them. I am betting Amazon has just found a way to bring cost down slightly on existing technology.
