Tide just announced a new alternative to the classic bottle of laundry detergent. It basically looks and works just like a box of wine, which is sort of funny because of that whole meme about teens eating Tide Pods. But the new Tide Eco-Box is no joke. It’s actually a glimpse into a future where Amazon is dictating what our stuff looks like.

Clean food has been making its way onto menus for more than a decade, and as more and more consumers demand transparency around what they’re eating, some are beginning to look more critically at the safety of the packaging their food comes in. While individual chemicals have come under scrutiny, neither consumers nor the packaging industry have called for or developed a holistic approach to packaging designed to satisfy this new appetite for transparency. Professional networks like the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) have published documents to provide guidance in this space, however, no one standard or approach has been endorsed universally within the industry. Therefore, the responsibility will rest upon individual companies to address this emerging topic.

At heart this trend isn’t just about payments. Yes, consumers will increasingly expect to use their (smart)phones to pay for anything, wherever they are: not just ‘online’, but for ‘real-world’ commercial transactions, too*.

The new capability has been highly requested by Amazon (and Ebay and any other platform with wish list-like functions) users for a long time, and it previously only allowed us to share our wish lists, simply meaning others could merely view the lists.Image: LightRocket via Getty Images

Having been involved in the development of several e-commerce products over the years, one thing I’ve learned is that a great product and a persuasive marketing message aren’t always enough to help you generate lasting success.

If you know the company Square, it's probably because you've paid in a store using a Square “stand,” a dock that supports a tablet, or you've swiped your card through Square Reader, a smartphone dongle that processes payments. These products have a soothing, decidedly Apple-y aesthetic, from the simple dongle to the all-white stand that typically houses an iPad. But since late last year, Square has been quietly selling its own custom-made tablet, the Square Register, a $999, Android-based system. And the company has taken an obsessive approach to designing the product.

Password-free logins have long been the stuff of dreams for security researchers and privacy advocates—not to mention regular people who fat-finger their account passwords into a browser every day. Industry efforts to end our reliance on the multi-character password have resulted in the proposal of numerous alternative login methods, including biometric verification and the use of behavioral data to prove an individual's identity. But most of these attempts haven't yet lead to the promised land: A web without passwords.

“In the packaging industry, there is no way around active and intelligent packaging anymore; in the past six years, it has become a real industry.” That was how Eef de Ferrante, Managing Director for the Active & Intelligent Packaging Industry Association opened the 2017 Active & Intelligent Packaging World Congress and Hackathon in Amsterdam. Six years ago, de Ferrante recalled, he visited a supplier showroom with an industry colleague where intelligent packaging technology was being demonstrated. While de Ferrante was excited about the development, his colleague was not impressed. “This is nonsense,” the colleague said. “Nobody is using it now, and nobody will.”

But knockoffs get a bad rap because they are of indeterminate quality: Even if it’s selling at a good price, who wants to risk buying a no-name portable smartphone charger if it might blow up in your face? Allen Fung, the general manager of Sunvalley’s American division, said that what was unique about Amazon was that its store encouraged low prices while heavily penalizing companies that made shoddy products.
