Our Amazon Echo arrived earlier than anticipated. After an initial estimate of April 24th, Mitcz got an email on Tuesday that it was on its way and would arrive Thursday. It arrived the following day (today).
So, as promised, we unboxed it here on this episode and ran “Alexa” through her paces. We even Periscope’d a good portion of the episode (including the actual unboxing). At 14:10, Mitcz accidentally makes a request to Alexa that not only elicits a hilarious response, but leads to us shouting all sorts of things at the Echo because of how she handles vulgar language.
Listen as Mitcz & Alex talk about the ups and downs of this new “Smart Speaker” device.
