    Amazon Echo is always ready, connected, and fast. Just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo is controlled by your voice for hands-free convenience and is connected to the cloud so it's always getting smarter. Request an invite at http://amazon.com/echo

    Did you get one? I'm a major Amazon Prime member and signed up with the e-mail on the first day and still haven't gotten an invitation.

    Here are some good parody videos...

    I am sorry to seem dense, but I don't get how this is any better than just using Siri (or its equivalent) on your phone.

    Wouldn't this directly compete with your EBay sponsors Dawg?

    I'm surprised @dawg would support amazon

    Lining their workers up for post work frisking...could take a half hour, could take an hour. Doesn't matter, supreme court ruled they don't get paid for their time

    Wow, a few other off the shelf technology gadgets and I can imagine an "Echo, who won the Steelers game,make me a sandwich and suck my dick". Woman beware.

    Don't trust Bezos & his ilk.
    George Orwell warned us about Amazon.
    To quote Job 40:15-"Behold now Behemoth" - it's the End Times Rag, Dawg.

    Yup. Amazon is mastering the "loss leader" for its Fire HD products etc: Put out a cheap piece of hardware, then load it with an insufferable amount of "commercial-tie-ins" to build a permanent buying base. George Orwell was about the Totalitarian State. Amazon has given us the Totalitarian Private Corporation: beaming its commercials into your cozy little home 24/7.

    There's a new function on the iPhone you can turn on only when the phone is plugged into the wall. You can then say "hey Siri" and ask it or tell it to do things. I use it to set alarms mostly.
