Ever since I first saw the video for the Echo, I wanted one. It’s almost like something out of Star Trek. It’s an invitation only purchase for Amazon Prime members. The first round of invites went out a week or so ago. I got my invite today and immediately purchased it. I’ll let you know how it goes. If it turns into a bad robot and tries to kill me, I’ll still like it better than Siri.
The below article is pretty good. The CNET review wasn’t very kind, but I think they were just upset because Amazon didn’t give them one and they had to go to Ebay to purchase one. The ZDNet review was a “10 out of 10” (maybe Amazon gave them 2).
