Amazon Echo Show – http://amzn.to/2tS7Fau

Would you like to see how Echo Show works?  Hands free and with a screen.

Music, shopping lists, movie trailer, alarms–learn about these features and more. Watch now

I have been on the fence about the new Echo Show.  Not sure if I really need it with a screen.  Been listening to Dave McCabe video review it over at maccabe.io and can see the benefits of it both ways.  At $229, the price is a little steep for me.  Might wait till I can find a $199 deal in a few months.  What about you?  Would you buy a 2 pack to get the better price?

 

Amazon Dash Wand is now available from Amazon.  Catch the link below.  Right now you can get it for $20 with a $20 Amazon credit.  If you choose the slow shipping, you can get an additional $5 credit off your next order.

And a Review

http://www.techhive.com/article/3202772/connected-home/amazon-dash-wand-review.html

The Wand is now on order and is shipping next week.  Will try it out with Sarah and see if it can make a difference in our food orders.  I have not really trusted the Dash buttons in the past due to the fact that I can’t see the price.  Not sure if this will change anything.

Great examples on how to use these in the show.  Very expensive for just a toy.  Would be great for work.
