From payments one click a way to...no click away
This morning, Amazon announced a new device called Echo. With a built-in, cloud connected, “always on” microphone, the Echo can listen for your voice “from across the room.” You can ask it about the weather. You can tell it to set an alarm. You can ask it for information about Abraham Lincoln. It’s a personal assistant in a tube! But let’s be clear here on what this thing is beyond that — or what it will be. Amazon is not in the business of telling you whether or not it will rain tomorrow.
