Re: Amazon Go: No More Lines At The Grocery Store

I'm pretty sure they will be using video object recognition and not RFIDs etc. The cameras will see you pick up the items, where you put it etc. The data science available is way deeper than you...

Re: NCIS: New Orleans (CBS) -- Series Thread

Re: What's a good car mount for your phone?
