Amazon EchoThu, Nov 6, 2014
Amazon Echo is clearly an indicator of where tech is heading. Having bought and used a Kindle Fire, however, I have little faith in Amazon’s ability to deliver quality software for voice recognition, which is the core feature of the Echo. Google is the clear leader there, and Google’s ability to recognize proper nouns correctly is excellent (probably due to Knowledge Graph). As usual, though, Amazon got the pricing right.
