Amazon may soon sell haircuts, babysitters

Tech Industry
In the future, your smart home, will connect to your smart jewelry. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNet update. You can buy all sorts of items on Amazon. But later this year, you may use Amazon to buy a haircut. Roiders is reporting that Amazon's working on launching a marketplace for local services, such as plumbers or babysitters. And this would start off as a small test to gauge interest. Similar to the limited roll out of the AmazonFresh grocery delivery service. Now, this would challenge sites like Yelp, and Angie's List. It seems Amazon has been carefully, testing out this idea because, if you ordered an S Thermostat, Amazon may have also tried to serve you a service to install it. And speaking of the nest, Honeywell has a new smart home thermostat that, looks a bit similar to the Next. The Honeywell Lyric is $280, and it arrives in stores this August. Honeywell has a few smart thermostats already in the market, but this model goes back to a classic round design, from the 50s. It's a design that the Nest is making popular again. The lyric tracks your Smartphone location to know when you leave the home, and when you're gone, it'll switch to an energy saving mode. And switching from the Smart home to Smart bracelets, next month it'll only cost you a $1 to be among the first to test out, the Razer Nabu. No, not Star Wars Naboo. This is N-A-B-U, and it's a hybrid between a smart watch and a fitness band. The gaming company Razer is opening up beta testing on July 10th and it will award 500 fans the chance to try out this device, which is an accessory for your iPhone or Android smartphone. It vibrates and displays notification alerts of calls and text messages. It tracks activity and it can give someone your contact information, if you give them a high five. That is, if they're also wearing one. You can apply to test it out on the Razer Nabu website. And there seems to be a new smart tracking watch thing every week. But, if you want something more unique, perhaps you'll be interested in a smart ring. It's called the Ringly. And, this bling will vibrate to alert you whenever you get a text, a phone call, or a notification. If your phone is buried in your purse, you probably don't hear the alerts. And Ringly can help with that paranoid you missed something feeling. So you don't have to keep checking your phone. It has a tiny light on the side that flashes the different colors, and you can set different vibration patterns to mean different things. It works with IOS and Android phones, comes in different stone designs and you can pre-order it for. $145, techy style doesn't come cheap. That's your tech news update, but there's always more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
