Amazon Prime, the $79-a-year service by Amazon that gives you free 2-day shipping on almost everything on their site, is now offering 30-day free trials. That sounds great, but it’s just a way to trick you into staying home even more than you do now. I live less than a mile from the grocery and I order food on Amazon Prime.
If a person buying food from a bookstore doesn’t convince you that this service is truly maleficent: they let anyone with an Amazon Prime membership watch basically any TV show, streaming, for free.
There’s also the small issue of the drones they’re going to start using in 2015, but I’ve already written about that.
