That is cool. Would want to see how it performed with a non American accent before committing to it though.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Nice. Hmm. Tempting.

Will see if there's any money left after our holiday...

Interesting - think I'll wait for you to try it before I order though. Visions of star trek.

would like it for home automation, "just say turn on tv, or start netflix" etc.  nice if you could also control streaming services like google play and play the music through a stereo etc.

If MS put Cortana onto Xbox One, it could handle this as well.... (hint hint MS) ;)

I just got serious e-wood watching this. As a prime member I get precedence and a good price break which is cool. I want one of these so much!

It's going to complement my Kindle FireTV, and HDX 8.9 Tablets nicely. 

This week alone stuff I was given as a result of my membership paid for itself, and last week and the week before. I love it. Best membership I own!

My new Voyage is here Friday I can't wait for that either.

Well my invite was confirmed and my purchase made. Youshop will have it Saturday and if that's the case I might have it next Friday and will post feedback after that.

Damn! That is good news. Hopefully my invite gets approved soon. The wife asked "When are we getting one?" when I showed her the video so I guess that is purchase approval.





My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Outraged!
