New Amazon Go

3 Reasons Why Amazon Will Make So Much Money Off 'Amazon Go'

Amazon Go is going to the future.


My life changed this morning when my sleepy fingers graced over the Twitter app icon. Immediately, the latest headline stole my gaze, "First Amazon Go Store Opens in California." You are probably thinking exactly what I said, "Amazon Go where?" Well let me tell you, Amazon Go is going to the future. Amazon Go will change anything you ever thought you knew about grocery shopping, and it will make Amazon billions.

Here is the general concept of the Amazon Go store:

Cashierless Shopping

This is awesome! This brings the greatest thing about Amazon, not having to interact with people while buying things, while forcing you to go outside because you know your kind of starting to forget what the world looks like outside of your bedroom.

High Tech Tracking Technology

Another article I read while researching Amazon Go actually read "- high tech tracking technology instead of human interaction." Again, they are targeting the right audience my friend. Amazon knows the type of people that use Amazon. We want our deliveries quick and without leaving our homes to get it.

No Money!

No cashiers. Tracking Technology. They both lead to the ultimate money making aspect of Amazon Go. No money. When you enter the store, you scan your barcode in the app, and that's it. You go get whatever you want, put it in a bag, and walk out. No waiting in lines. Nothing. It's like it's free Of course, it'll somehow through the magic of technology figure out what you bought and charge you through the Amazon Go app. However, just like on the Amazon website, you'll forget about 'money' as you see all these thing you can just have! Before you know it you 1-click delivered $100 worth of nonsense that you don't even need.

Best believe I'm filling up my bag and walking out of Amazon Go like I didn't just spend next month's rent.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?
