So, just in case you didn't get the memo, Amazon wants your money. Real bad. To that end, the company has created a chatbot called Rufus that will not only tell you all the details about the product, but will also solve your queries about anything that has to do with impulse-driven needless online shopping.

Trained on Amazon’s vast product catalog, the endless sea of customer reviews, the ever-so-insightful community Q&As, and a sprinkle of wisdom from across the web, Rufus is here to tackle the monumental task of answering your shopping queries.

Whether you're in dire need of product comparisons, seeking recommendations that fit just right in your conversational context, or simply trying to navigate the thrilling world of online shopping, it's got you covered. After all, what else could you possibly need?

Here are a few things Rufus can do, if you just ask it, kindly:

|| “What are the differences between trail and road running shoes?”
|| “What to consider when buying headphones?”
|| “Is this jacket machine washable?”
|| “What do I need for cold weather golf?”
|| “What’s the difference between lip gloss and lip oil?”
|| “Best dinosaur toys for a 5-year-old.”

It's sorta like a web browser exclusively for shopping, inside the Amazon app, to give your dad a few credit card bill-related panic attacks. Thankfully, Rufus – the nasty capitalist chatbot – is only limited to a certain bunch of folks in the US, with plans of expansion in the coming weeks.

We certainly hope Rufus doesn't cross the US shores, for the sake of humanity's hopes of not further enriching an already obscenely rich corporation. Amen!
