Amazon Echo

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

My totally non techie next door neighbour has Amazon Echo and I have no idea what it's really for. We don't live in smart houses - come on, these are social housing bungalows where you'd need planning permission for anything other than decorating the place.

So tell me - unless I want to buy a dolls' house as in the newsworthy headline - what does it really do? Is it technology too far unless you have built your own smart home?

Dunno, Flo, but I'm fairly certain it will have Amazon laughing all the way to the bank (assuming they haven't got their own by now).
A word of caution to your neighbours - OH informs me that comments on the TV might be able to trigger it, so they might find they've bought a Maserati. :lol:
