Remember Staples’ big, bold, “That Was Easy” button? It’s now been resurrected, but not by the office supply company — instead, it’s national pizza chain Domino’s that has taken over the device, because sometimes, picking up the phone to order your pizza is just too much work.

By pairing with the Domino’s app via Bluetooth, the Easy Order button literally lets the laziest pizza enthusiast satisfy their heart and stomach’s desires at the  touch of a button. Simply save your address and payment information on the app, select your favorite pizza, and then every time you hit the Easy Order button, you’ll have a hot, fresh one at your doorstep.

And because you’ll doubtless want to track your pizza and estimate its delivery time, the button will glow red when your pie is en route.

Domino’s has certainly been at the forefront of the mobile revolution, taking full advantage of the rise of the digital age to drive further pizza consumption. Currently, the Telegraph reports, 75 percent of Domino’s orders are actually received digitally, and half of those are placed using the restaurant’s mobile app. In fact, so popular is the idea that the firm’s easy-order app has been downloaded over 10 million times.

This certainly isn’t Domino’s first foray into easier ordering — you can also get a pizza by way of your Xbox so that you don’t even have to stop gaming in order to eat. And with this Easy Order button, things are about as simple as they can get (short of telepathy).

Unfortunately, the first batch of these life-changing buttons will only be available via a competition among “superfans” in the U.K. Further details will emerge in December, and Domino’s has plans for a wider rollout in February of 2016 — though still just in the U.K. Of course, it seems that the American market would go bonkers over this button too, so hope is still alive that we may one day ourselves have an Easy Order button.

Until then, you can still use the Domino’s app, which features a virtual button that serves the same purpose. Sure, it’s not as satisfying as pushing the real thing, but it’ll get the job done. And it’s still easier than picking up the phone.

Best Dyson deals: Cordless vacuums, purifying fans, and beauty
The Dyson V15 Detect cordless vacuum with its laser.

If you aren't familiar with Dyson, it's a company that was first made famous by those fancy-looking bladeless fans but that has now taken that tech and spread out to a huge selection of products, including vacuum cleaners and hair straighteners. Unfortunately, it is a high-end brand, which means that all of its devices are pretty expensive; even the basic stuff, like its SuperSonic Hair Dryer, can cost up to $500, which is a lot of cash. Luckily, there are a lot of great deals floating around that you can take advantage of, and we've collected some of our favorites below.

That said, if you haven't quite found what you're looking for, you can check out these vacuum deals, cordless vacuum deals, and air purifier deals instead.

The iRobot Roomba Combo 10 Max might be the best robot vacuum for carpet
The Roomba Combo 10 Max lifting its mop.

iRobot is gearing up to launch a new robot vacuum, with the Roomba Combo 10 Max arriving in August. The robot makes big upgrades to its docking station, as it can automatically refill, wash, and dry the mopping pad -- making this the first multifunctional dock from iRobot. Best of all, it keeps its predecessors' swinging mop arm design, making it ideal for homes with both carpet and hard floors.

While much of the competition has offered self-cleaning docks for years (including Ecovacs and Roborock), this is a first for Roomba. After a cleaning cycle, the robot vacuum will return to its dock to refill its water tank and recharge its battery. It'll also get its mopping pad washed with water and dried with circulated air, preventing the buildup of mold and odors. You'll even have the option to run a manual self-clean and receive notifications if a deeper clean (or maintenance) is required.
