Amazon moved Tuesday to become an errand service for home staples, introducing a "dash button" to allow consumers to instantly order popular products for home and kitchen. The move boosts Amazon's presence for everyday services and goods and comes a day after the online retail giant launched a wide-ranging services marketplace. "When you're running low, simply press Dash Button, and Amazon quickly delivers household favorites so you can skip the last-minute trip to the store," says the online retailer's website promoting the service for its Amazon Prime members. "Use the Amazon app on your smartphone to easily connect to your home Wi-Fi network and select the product you want to reorder with Dash Button," the Web page says.
