But even Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos thinks that future is a long time coming.
In a recent interview, Bezos said that with shopping, Alexa is only really "good for reordering consumables, where you don't have to make a lot of choices, but most online shopping is going to be facilitated by having a display."
He's not wrong, either. If you're buying anything more complicated than toilet paper, using an Amazon Echo or Google Home to buy stuff is about as much fun as having a friend read you the Costco catalog over the phone. Anything else, and you still need to sit down in front of a phone, tablet, or computer.
