Amazon's live shopping show merges QVC with YouTube

Culture
Amazon has it's first live daily show. And it's kind of like the home shopping network. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Amazon has a brand new, 30 minute, live, daily show, and it's just to talk about fashion things that you can buy on Amazon. It's as if they mixed the Home Shopping Network with YouTube makeup tutorials, and are hosting it with hip, young, quasi-famous-ish people. It's called Style Code Live, and On Amazon.com at 9 p.m. eastern, 6 Pacific, Monday through Friday. It's hosted by Lyndsey Rodrigues, who has been on MTV's Total Request Live, and there's Rachel Smith, a correspondent at Good Morning, America And Frankie Grande, a Broadway performer, who was on Big Brother, and also big brother to singer Ariana Grande, and these three will tell you about hot style trends with celebrity guests, and you'll see links to buy the stuff as featured. Amazon had made some pushes before into selling apparel With the Amazon fashion page, and this is another way to get a younger generation to think about buying clothes and makeup from Amazon. And maybe next, we'll be shopping on Amazon inside virtual reality, because Amazon is looking to hire Hire a senior software development manager for virtual reality. That's according to a new job posting spotted on the site Glassdoor. This person will lead a team to build, quote, the virtual reality experience within Amazon video. And in other new ways to spend your money, Apple Pay has expanded mobile payments to Mobil gas stations. Well, I should say Exxon/Mobil. The new Exxon/Mobil Speed Pass Plus app let's you pay for gas with your phone. But You do not have to tap the phone to anything on the pump. You don't even need to get out of your car to pay. You just need to have location turned on. With GPS, the app tells which station you're at and then you just tell it what pump number you're at, like pump number eight, and you use your fingerprint to approve the transaction. Then the pump is unlocked and you have 45 seconds to get out and start filling up. This launched Tuesday at 6,000 Exxon and Mobil stations across the US, and it's gonna be at all locations by the end of the year. Mobile payments are slowly expanding across the globe. Just this week, Square Became available in Australia. And square is that little card reader that you can put on a phone or tablet to make a payment. It's pretty popular with small business owners. Australia is only the fourth country to get square, following the US, Canada and Japan. That's it for this tech news update. You can head to cnet. com for more. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
