Amazon Echo - First Hand Look #mediacenter #homeaudio
Our initial impressions of the Amazon Echo, in short two thumbs way up. If you are an Amazon Prime member this device is a no brainer and if you can get it at the $99 promotional price it's an absolute must have. The features, performance and high quality hardware are fantastic. I've noticed children love this device especially given it's tie in with wikipedia. Besides the entertainment factor the educational factor could be the hidden killer feature that in my opinion propel this device from a geek to mass adopted consumer hit.
My wishlist of features:
- Fast forward what your listening to (not to be confused with skipping to next song/item).
- Read Audible audio books.
- Some sort of calendar integration.
- Some sort of phone/messaging integration.
