TechHive TechWatch: Amazon coins, Budweiser buddy cups and smelly phones

Another week, another gloriously inappropriate episode of TechWatch. In this cheeky jaunt, Carlos Rodela reports on the Amazon "coins" that no one wants or needs; a new social media play from Budweiser that's destined for trouble; and new technology that turns your smartphone into a stink bomb.

Because, you know, whipping out your smartphone in the middle of a fancy restaurant isn't sufficiently rude already.

Like what you see? Then make sure to watch the previous episode of TechWatch in which Carlos is haunted by Twitter- and Facebook-inspired hullucinations.
