Staples is making a downloadable Easy Button available for computer desktops.
You know those "Easy Button" commercials touting how easy it is to shop from office supply superstore Staples? Well, it's about to get even easier, according to the retailer.
Starting on Jan. 1, a downloadable Easy Button will be available for computer desktops. Customers will then be able to link directly to Staples' Web site and access (as well as purchase) products such as Internet security protect software, paper shredders, organizing supplies, locking file cabinets, safes and surge protectors.
The downloadable button complements the retail chain's "Easy Button" desk accessory. Proceeds from the sale of that item, up to $1 million, are donated to Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
