Amazon fake reviews scam revealed in data breach with massive potential

By now, most of us probably suspect that fake reviews on internet shopping sites are a real thing. Whether being offering so-called "free product trials" after buying something or encountering a review that makes the product a little too good to be true, it's easy to assume that fake reviews are a thing that happens. Today, however, a new security breach is giving us a better idea of just how widespread this might be.

Amazon may start asking even more of its delivery drivers

Amazon may start asking even more of its delivery drivers

Amazon is reportedly set to trial a new home assembly service for larger items, where delivery drivers would also put together furniture, appliances, or other larger items. The move, which is said to be planned for just a handful of markets as the online retail behemoth gauges popularity and feasibility, could make home shopping even easier, though there are concerns that delivery drivers themselves may face impractical expectations.

Best Buy paid membership program is its Amazon Prime response

Amazon really turned the retail industry on its head and even until now big shot competitors from brick and mortar businesses are still trying to catch up to it.

Twitter Shopping Card is already in testing

Social networks have always been a great channel for getting the word out on a new product but, save for a few, they haven't exactly been great for actually buying said product. Over the years, social networks, especially Facebook, have been working to bridge that gap and make it easy, perhaps too easy, to just jump in and buy something. Unsurprisingly, Twitter won't be left behind and is already testing a big "SHOP" button on some of its tweets.

If you're looking for some hard-to-find PC gaming hardware at the moment (as so many people seem to be), then you might want to have a look at Newegg right now. The company is hosting another Newegg Shuffle today, giving people the chance to buy in-demand hardware without having to race through check out.

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

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. When it comes to the latest PS5 restock from UK retailer Argos, that seems to quite literally be the case, as a group of organized scalpers were able to take advantage of a loophole to buy up stock before Argos intended to open sales to the general public.

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

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. Stock disappears nearly as quickly as it's listed, and because of that, Twitter might just be the best tool anyone has at their disposal to land one of these hard-to-find consoles.
