Hi SPCR forum members,

The Amazon Echo promo email that reached my inbox this morning had me on the phone with the Echo team in half an hour seeking a review sample. Two disappointments: 1) They're not making free samples available to tech reviewers, and 2) the Echo is only available in the US. Apparently this is due to the fact that lots of its programming is geo-related (ie, your precise location).

The Echo really seems like the first implementation of a '60s (Star Trek) vision of the computer: A talking all-knowing intelligence responsive to your spoken questions.

But I can't get or review it in Vancouver, BC, Canada. So will any of you in the US take up the challenge & buy one to review for SPCR? Even better, perhaps you already have one & have been using it for a while!?! Details of how to review for SPCR are posted elsewhere on the main site, but anyone with a sense of organization, tech interest & some writing ability can do this. Please let me know if you'd like the chance to write this review for SPCR.
