How cool would it be to walk into a store, scanning a QR code off your phone when you enter, and then just taking things off the shelves and walking out?

Amazon is experimenting with a convenience store that's staffed by sensors instead of a clerk, and Glenn and Susie have plenty of thoughts.
Elsewhere, we talk about iPhone 6s batteries, the slow death of Flash, the holy-crap-kind-of-confirmed Project Titan, mesh routers, giant batteries, and the craziest adapter chain yet.
