    I have two Amazon Echos and an Amazon Tap (the portable).
    Wouldn't want to go without them!!!

    We control our thermostat, lights and garage door opener by the Echo's voice commands.
    The sound for music is fantastic and I even place some of my Amazon.com orders through the Echo.

    The thing is pretty damned addicting.

    @keywordpk won one at work. We're trying to sell it in local garage sale sites / Craigslist.

    We already have enough stuff, don't need more clutter :c

    my brother and his wife have one.

    no way I'd ever get one of those. I keep my phone and tablet in a box when not using.

    My friends have one. They have it set up for music, lights, door locks, head and air conditioning, probably more that I don't know about. It's cool, but with these type of devices that can do all this for you without you having to get up, how close are we to looking like this:

    I thought about getting one, but not sure what I would use it for. Maybe music? I'm sure it doesn't sound as good as my stereo though. Same reason I never purchased a Tablet like an iPad, always thought they were cool, but I don't know what I would use it for, so I never got one.

    I don't trust anything that listens to everything all day. Just seems creepy, gathering information on my family.

    Only a matter of time when computers will be watching and listening to us 24/7...and then they're gonna figure out what big fuckups we really are.

    And kill us.

    So, no, I don't have an Amazon Echo
