Amazon Echo

We are among the early beta testers of the Amazon Echo.  After spending a few weeks with this thing, I give it very high marks.  Highly recommended for anyone who has Amazon Prime.  It has changed the way I listen to music.  You just tell it what artist or song you want and it just starts playing.  Genious.
