Buzzfeed reports that a widespread scam on Amazon radically inflates the so-called “retail price” to crazy levels to trick you into believing that the “discount price” is a great deal. So a product that actually sells for $30 might be discounted to $28, but the listing lies and says the regular, retail price is $300.
Amazon has a bad reputation for using technology to micromanage workers and squeeze every bit of productivity out of them.
Now the company has been granted two patents for a wristband that can both pinpoint where each worker is, and also track their real-time hand movements.
Is this going too far? Would YOU work in a place where your hand movements were tracked?
