For those of you that don’t remember, Amazon Echo is a really cool Bluetooth speaker that also serves as a virtual assistant. From anywhere in the room Echo is placed in you can say “Alexa” followed by your question. It was one of coolest gadgets available when it released but, unfortunately not many people could buy it because an Invite was required.
Thankfully Echo is finally available to everyone and invites are no longer required. The device currently costs 179.99 on Amazon and is currently out of stock until July 14th, so you will have to wait a bit for it to ship. The price may seem a bit steep but, you have to remember that this is not only a simple Bluetooth speaker but a personal assistant that harnesses the power of the internet to answer your questions on the fly. You can ask it tons of questions related weather, news, cooking, traffic, sports, shopping and lots more.
