[Update - January 14, 2016] So, my wife ended up not liking the Echo. The kids were always screaming "ALEXA!" at the same time and trying to get it to tell a joke. So, yeah, crash and burn on that one. [End Update]
As I was searching for a good gift for my best friend this Christmas I realized that pretty much the best general Christmas gift you could give anyone on your list this Chrismas is the Amazon Echo. I don't know anyone that has one yet and I can't think of anyone on my list who wouldn't use it (all the time!) and wouldn't appreciate the gift.
It's not on the cheap end but if you're looking for something that will be used for years to come and (with constant updates and new functionality) that gets more valuable by the day, it's really hard to go wrong with the Echo.
I haven't gotten to use one yet but I'll post a review once the lucky person on my list unwraps it and we use it for a bit. :)Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
