It’s a PS5 restock war and the scalpers and bots are winning

As the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X continue to sell out immediately - seemingly the moment new stock is listed - there's a lot of concern from regular consumers that scalpers are beating everyone to the punch.

PS5 and Xbox Series X restocks: Finally, Twitter is useful for something

The PS5 and Xbox Series X restock situation has been frustrating to say the least. The problem of limited stock is exacerbated by people shopping with bots and the fact that some retailers aren't allowing for in-store purchases.

Amazon Dash Smart Shelf can detect when supplies are running low

Amazon Dash Smart Shelf can detect when supplies are running low

Amazon's Dash line of products started out as single-purpose buttons you could press to order a single product. It has since replaced that with virtual web buttons or functionality built into some appliances but those still required people to actually keep track of how much supplies they have left.

That's why Amazon created its Dash Smart Shelf last year and it is rolling it out to business customers and consumers so they won't have to manually keep an eye on the toilet paper before panicking to buy more.
