What Is Amazon Echo

What is Amazon Echo?  When I think of the Amazon Echo I think of a movie I watched some time ago, and probably a movie you have seen as well. The movie is Rocky 3.  If you have seen that movie then you should remember the scene to where it is Pauli’s birthday, and he gets a very interesting birthday gift.  A talking robot, by the name of Sico. This robot was able to do many things according to what Pauli asked it to do.  Like bring him a beer.  Now What Is Amazon Echo?  Lets take a look a number of Great Features below.  There are many more Amazon Echo Features  waiting for you as well.

Now the Amazon Echo will not bring you a beer or a birthday cake.  But it can do many things to make your life a whole lot easier.  Here are just some of things it can do to not only make your life easier, but also help you be more productive throughout your day.

You’ve Stepped Into The Future With Amazon Echo. 

To some it seems like a fun toy, and it can be, the Amazon Echo has a lot of fun features.  But to others who truly see it’s full potential it can be a serious convenience to make their life, well, extremely Convenient.  People love conveniences and will fork out their hard earned cash for it.

What Is Amazon Echo

Lets take buying Fruit Trays in a produce department at outrageous prices for an example (I know a silly example, but is it)?  You do know that there is a guy who works all night cutting up fruit (so you don’t have to). And he simply puts these fruit pieces in a fancy tray and then charges you a huge convenience fee.  At $11.99 a pop we know that is all we are paying for is convenience. Ok to be fair just the fruit in itself probably costs $5.00 or maybe a little more, depending on the fruit, but I promise you that the fruit he put on that tray, if you were to cut it up yourself, would not cost you anywhere near $11.99. And yet we buy it anyways.  Why?  To save time. It’s a convenience!  

Still Writing That Grocery List On A Piece Of Paper?

What Is Amazon Echo

I still see people walking around the grocery store with an old fashioned paper Grocery Shopping List.  Hey that’s fine.  There are still those that hold up the line when you are checking out at the grocery store writing a check too.  But think about it. If you had a device that you can speak to, to have it compile a Grocery List for you and sent to your mobile device wouldn’t that be a bit more convenient?  The Amazon Echo would be happy to do that for you.

The Amazon Echo brings a very convenient way of listening to music. With lots of variety, and the ability to speak your music into existence. To me this is much better than pausing to set up a playlist on my computer or tablet or pausing to put in a new CD. Another great thing about the Amazon Echo is you have the ability to Upload All Your Music From Any Device To The Amazon Library. If you wouldn’t want this convenience then you are just being stubborn.

What’s The Traffic like This morning?

What Is Amazon Echo

Let’s talk about the traffic for a moment.  We both know that there can be many scenarios that can wreck havoc on our way to wherever we are going.  And of course most of the time we don’t know trouble until we drive right into it. Unless we get lucky and catch the traffic on the news via T.V. or radio. But there is still not a guarantee that they will cover the route that we plan on driving. I don’t know if it’s just me, or if it’s just fate, but I always end up taking a route that either has construction work going on or an accident or something to slow me down. And it usually happens when I am tight on time. How about you? Are you any luckier then I am? There must be a solution to find a route that will get us to our destination quick and without any issues. And there is, Let’s talk about what that solution is for a moment.

You guessed it, were going to talk about the Amazon Echo’s Traffic feature.  How can this device help us get us where need to go in a timely manner, and in one piece? Ok, so Alexa can’t help you with the latter part of that last sentence. Just drive safely, and watch out for those who do not. I am going to tell you about this feature now, and this is going to be really short, because it really is this simple.  Ready?  In your Alexa app put in your starting and ending address and then ask Alexa what the traffic is like. She then will tell you if the the path is clear or not. I usually have at least two or three different routes to the same place, so this feature really does help a lot!  Unless my situation depicts the picture above that is.

Weather, Calling For Blizzard Conditions:

What Is Amazon EchoI live in Colorado.  And here the weather can change within minutes.  Sunny one moment and thunderstorms the next. Same with snow. It can be 70 degrees today, then the next morning you wake up and it’s snowing.  It’s really hard to keep up with the weather here.  It’s been pretty mild as of late.  Not too many changes for the past couple of weeks. Thankful for that. But I know living here the weather can change in a heartbeat, and it is imperative that I know what the weather is going to be like at all times.  You want to know what the weather is going to be like now or tomorrow? Just ask Alexa.  No need to take the time to look at the weather on your phone or your TV.  Just Ask, and Alexa will be happy to fill you in.  Quick and Convenient.

We Live In The Future Today….

Next up is having Amazon Echo Turn on and off your lights. Even Doc Brown couldn’t come up with this one.  All I can say is Wow, very nice!  You tell Alexa to turn your lights on or off and she will do just that!  No more getting out of bed to turn the lights out for whatever reason. To afraid to get up and turn the lights off so you can hide under your covers?  The novel Pet Cemetery by Stephen King will do that to you.  No problem just ask Alexa to turn the lights off while you hide under the covers.  Have an urgent need in the middle of the night?  And you don’t feel like fumbling around the dark for the light switch?  Just ask Alexa to turn the lights on for you as you run to the, well you know…   I find this feature very convenient!  This feature helps in many situations.

When Football Season Rolls Around,

What Is Amazon EchoYou May Need A little Help…

Looks like the Denver Broncos are on a winning streak this year!  And I would like to know when the next game is. Well who do I call?  Not the Ghostbusters, but Alexa!  She knows exactly when they are playing next, and she is just waiting for me to ask her.  No more sitting at the television waiting to find out when they play next.  get rid of taking the time to look on my phone when they are playing next.  If you are on your way to work, you just may miss that next great game because they announced it as soon as you got out of the car to head on in to work. But with the Amazon Echo you can now know on the fly when your favorite team is playing next.  And this doesn’t just go with football, but pretty much any sport.

Want To Be Read A Bedtime Story?

What Is Amazon Echo

There are two things I like to do.  Eat and Read.  But eating and reading doesn’t go without it’s challenges.  It would be nice if I could do both without missing a beat.  Well now I can. Amazon Echo will allow me to do both. Enjoy eating with BOTH hands and hear your favorite novel all at the same time.  And I don’t have to fiddle with anything, just ask Alexa to play my favorite audio book and I’m good to go.  Have things to do around the house or unexpected interruptions?  Get whatever you need done around the house while you listen to your favorite novel.  I remember the days when I would have to put down my book to let the dog out.  And he would always want out when I was at the really good parts of the book. There are many scenarios to where you would have to put down your book for unexpected interruptions.  Thank God those days are over.

Have You Forgotten What You Had Planned For Today?

What Is Amazon Echo

Not good when you are rushed for time and you are trying to get yourself ready and the rest of your siblings ready for the day.  No need to run to your paper calendar to see what you might have had planned, just ask Alexa and she will enlighten you right then and there.

Ready To Have Some Fun?

Life can’t be all work and no play.  No fun in that.  Amazon Echo has a new game and it’s called Simon Says.  A lot of people use this awesome feature to play pranks.  If you want to see a really funny prank using Simon Says check out the funny video I posted on the Updates Page. This will give you a taste of what Simon Says can do. The ways you can have fun with this are endless!

Have You Ever Wanted Your Very Own Secretary?

So what can you compare the Amazon Echo to in terms of Convenience?  To me one word pops in my mind and that is My Own Personal Secretary. Ok that’s four words but, you catch my drift. The Amazon Echo practically does everything a Secretary would do, except for make you a cup of coffee or make phone calls for you.  Not that you would need that anyways since you probably already have a coffee pot that already has a pot of coffee brewed for you in the morning by automatic timer.  See you do like convenience.  And of course you probably already have a Siri feature on your phone to where you can just tell it to call somebody.  It Seems The Amazon Echo is turning out to be pretty promising.  But enough talk, lets watch a quick video below as Videos speaks louder than words.

So you came because you had the question What Is Amazon Echo, and I hope now you have a pretty good idea what this device is, and how it works.  Just in case you need to see this lovely device in action I left a video below for you  Enjoy!
