The Amazon Echo is likely going to be at the top of everyone's list this holiday season, and Amazon is starting the holiday season by knocking $40 off of its regular price. Bringing it down to $139. For those that may be unaware of what the Amazon Echo actually is, it's a Bluetooth speaker with a personal assistant built-in, essentially. What we have here is Alexa, and she can do all sorts of things for you. From things like reading the headlines to you, playing music from your favorite apps, and answering simple questions. But she can do a whole lot more. She is integrated with a number of other products from Philips Hue, Belkin WeMo, Neato, and even Uber. The best part, though, is the fact that she can order pizza from Domino's for you.
Now, the Amazon Echo isn't the only way to get Alexa. There's also the Amazon Echo Dot, which is a much smaller and cheaper way to get Alexa. The Echo Dot is a small peace of hardware that you can connect to your existing speaker, whether it is Bluetooth or not. The Echo Dot is typically about $49.99, but right now, Amazon is knocking $10 off of the price, bringing it down to just $39.99. Making it an absolute steal for anyone that has been eyeing any Alexa-powered products.
