Amazon Go

There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about Amazon Go.  This is a supposedly groundbreaking new concept whereby people walk into a supermarket, take what they want, and then simply walk out again without stopping at a checkout.

Personally I don’t see what all the fuss is about: I used to see chavs in Adidas tracksuits and Rockport boots doing precisely that in Manchester stores as far back as the late ’90s.
