Comments by the readers on CNN:

"Another solution in search of a problem.

It seems like the other side of the story of the body of a lady found after her home was foreclosed upon. They estimated the lady had been dead for around 5 years. It seems the auto pay from the bank continued until the money was gone and went into foreclosure. The real estate agent found the body. Perhaps forcing everyone to have auto pay is a disservice. It is consistent with the business goal of collecting money and not providing any product or service, and assure everyone dies penniless.."

""Each product has its own designated button, which can be stuck or hung on appliances, cabinets, and anywhere you might want a physical reminder to buy every day necessities. "

This doesn't seem to match what I'm seeing/understanding. Your sentence acts like the picture above to where there is a "Tide" button and maybe a "Toilet Paper" button. No... this device has a BARCODE scanner and a MICROPHONE button for entering items."
