That’s right. You can get the ever amazing Amazon Echo right now for just $149. savings of forty bucks off its normal price. If you don’t want one for yourself it would make a great gift for that someone special in your life.
What can Amazon Echo Do? For one thing it includes all the music in Amazons 1,000,000 song Library. You can get even more listening pleasure by telling Alexa (that’s the voice you communicate with) to play music from your Pandora stations. Speaking of stations, Alexa can play yours through Tunein.
Wait, wait, there’s more. Much more.
Alexa will give you a flash news briefing every day, read your audible books to you and help you find a good restaurant with Yelp. You can use the Echo to adjust your smart thermostat, turn lights on and off and raise and lower your garage door.
Alexa will solve math problems for you and convert stuff like meters into yards or feet or cups into ounces. Amazon recently introduced tigger phrases for IFTTT (If This Then That) so you could teach the Echo to do things like have your Philips Hue bulbs blink when a certain event occurs or, as Amazon states, have your phone ring when you can’t find it. (You can learn all about Echo, trigger phrases and IFTTT by clicking here.)
So what are your waiting for. Amazon is committed to adding more and more features to the Echo so why not get it while it’s on sale? As CNET has said, “”The Echo may be the closest thing we’ll have to a Star Trek computer at home.
As for us we think you’ll end up believing it’s the best $149.99 you’ve ever spent.
