It's legit. I got lazy this morning, downloaded amazon prime now app from google play store, and purchased a couple of items at 1130. It arrived at 1340. Total extra cost : $1 optional tip for driver.

Someone mentioned Amazon now has access to USPS distribution centers, is this correct? It came in a plain paper bag like you'd get from a grocery store, but I'm not complaining. You can even see the driver as he goes through his route, and the app notifies you when he's getting close.

Dust off your table good sir...

You'll destroy the electronics around it.

I got canned air run through the tech biyearly. Keep the dust until move to new place every few years or so. Clean out a bunch of stuff, donate the rest. It's a working system... don't fix what isn't broken!

Maybe if there was a human recently dehydrated and vaporized in the room. Aside from heat, the effects of dust on electronics are grossly exaggerated. You're far more likely to destroy it with a static shock.

Exactly I never fried tech from dust, and heat rarely an issue post 2010 era. Everything so damned efficient can't find an excuse to double the watts of a chip for the lulz.

I'm so damned lazy I keep the same dishes filled with water on counter ready for 2 sec rinse and use. Allergy air filter on the AC unit takes care of the rest.

Like an artifical Forrest up in here. Nice and cozy.

I hope there's a Swiffer in that bag...


On a more serious note.... They don't offer that service where I live just yet and I am not sure if they ever will considering the population, but I think it's pretty neat and they will have many customers. Even as old as I am I hate waiting for my stuff to come in the mail. I get excited about new purchases and imagine it's the folks that feel the same as me that will keep this afloat.

I also heard that they are paying delivery folks a good amount to deliver these products...

Well amazon is pretty good as are most companies to stay competitive deliveries are usually within 3 days, sometimes next day for free. I like this cause it keeps me that much more lazier not having to go out for items need same day.

You know I was u2u another chap about my tub figured it was beige, but a bottle of ajax and 4 scrub pads later, I came back to remember it was white all along. No swifters that stuff is expensive, every once in a while i get towels or scrub pads, soak the floor in something or another, jam some tunes and start dancing until clean.

Nope.
Not available in my zip...

I am a forever last minute shopper...this would have been great!
Well, will be great I imagine one day...
Just last week my assistant, and my boss's assistant were scrambling trying to find something for her birthday without having to go to "the big city"...as usual we waited too late...She got cash!
How imaginary!
LOL

I love Amazon.

As a man I want to be able to go online, see reviews, find what I need, buy it and have it show up at my door. I hate to do actual shopping.

Do they deliver alcohol? I need some lager delivered today for beer can chicken (tonight's dinner). I don't have time to go pick it up.

Hmmm.....

Not sure I was thinking of opening up a rapid alcohol delivery bizz, but realized me being a drunk at the time maybe not the best idea. Think they got them now here in the DFW area.

Cash is universally loved.

My neighbor was telling me about this when I first moved into my new house over the summer. She worked for Amazon and according to her she used this APNow service for a minute in the city she lived in before moving here, I believe.

Are you automatically grandfathered in with this service if you've already got prime or is it extra? Plus, I read something a few weeks ago that mentioned prime is now under $100? Of course, if that's true, it's AFTER I had my subscription renewed at the original price.

Wait am I paying for prime? I thought that was tv shows and subscription. Don't see it on my bills.

Yes, those things are included plus the free 2-day shipping on orders which I use frequently. So basically you just need the Now app, no Prime sub required? Hm.

Btw .. Nice computer desk chair

Did you notice the back end bar for the squat rack?

Gotta balance my nerd to jock ratio to increase my options on the open market.

Oh heck yea! I need to see if this is avalible in my area. I love my Amazon Prime!

I order a lot of stuff for my son via Amazon, it's cheaper! Also buying bulk ute,s like TP and paper towels or garbage bags are a better deal especially when you have prime and subscribe to the product.

Dang 2hr? Woah.
Hell I'm sure in future we'll have a little Amazon box in every street with a 3d/carbon printer in it and you order something online and wait 5 minutes until it's 'made' in the box outside.
Crazy times indeed, 2 hours.

I'm not hating just imagining what's next.
