Welcome to the future. A future where everything around you is available for purchase, and your phone never stops watching you.
This is the future promised by Amazon and their new Fire Phone, revealed this morning by CEO Jeff Bezos at a live event in Seattle. If you're on the AT&T network in the United States, this future will shortly be made available for $199 on a two-year contract. Everyone else, for better or worse, will have to wait.
I wasn't able to get an invite to Amazon's livestream, so I made to with this liveblog from The Verge
. If I ended up getting any of this wrong blame them, not me.
