The Amazon Echo Show is here

If you think of cool gadgets that actually make life better, the last decade was dominated by Apple, The iPhone and the iPad. There was actual excitement at the prospect of their new products. People would watch Steve Jobs announce the new products. It feels like we are in a golden age of Amazon. It began with Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot & Amazon Tap and now the Amazon Echo Show is here.

The jury’s out on the Echo Look, but the announcement of the Amazon Echo Show has people genuinely excited about an electronic product. Well, I’m excited, at least…

WHAT IS THE AMAZON ECHO SHOW?

It’s not a program about the Amazon Echo. Nope. The Amazon Echo Show is an Amazon Echo with a screen.

The Amazon Echo Show adds a visual interface and activity to many of the cool things you do with the Amazon Echo.

Create video flash briefings. Interface with your security cameras and the standard shopping and to-do lists.

They’ve finally made a way to connect to others with Amazon Echo devices, so you can make video calls with the Amazon Show or audio calls to anyone with an Echo or Amazon Dot. Make “Echo to Echo” calls. Stupid cool, right?!

The Amazon Echo Show displays lyrics of songs that are playing from Amazon Music.

Our Echo speaker sounds great, but the Amazon Show speaker has speakers with Dolby (Dobly. Any Spinal Tap fans?) processing.

As mentioned, the Amazon Echo Show interfaces with many security cameras, like Ring as well as baby monitors. It’s compatible with home devices – thermostats and lights and more from WeMo, ecobee, Philips Hue, and such and so forth and more…

For the tinfoil hat folks, it has EIGHT count ‘em, EIGHT microphones, something called “beam forming technology” and noise cancellation. The literature from Amazon says “Echo Show hears you from any direction—even while music is playing.” Call Alex Jones and some Black Helicopters and we’ll all have a party in a FEMA camp as the device will learn from you and your habits and continue to add features.

You can still use all the cool and pointless skills and IFTTT features.

AND IT’S GOT A FRICKIN’ SCREEN!!!

Create photo galleries on Amazon Photo and then call up your galleries “Alexa, show my photos.”

NEW FEATURES

A great new feature is to use the Alexa app to send a message or call to your device at home. And… calling and messaging is FREE!

THE FUTURE

Is here. SNEAKY PETE RULES. So does CATASTROPHE.

The Amazon Echo Show is available now for 229.99.

THAT’S 230 BUCKS AMAZON! YOU CAN’T FOOL ME!
