    Amazon Echo

    We use it mostly for Tunein and Audible. Prime music for misc stuff. It understands my 2 and 5 year old reasonably well too.

    Amazon Echo

    They do, they only listen for the wake-word and all other processing is in the cloud.

    Sorry to hear that guys. We just set up our 3rd in the house, lol (Echo and 2 v1 Dots) and couldn't be happier.

    Windows 10 Question

    Never disagreed with that. I disagree with the idea that deciding not to actually read the dialog gives people a license to bitch. Good pivot though. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Windows 10 Question

    You're making my point for me, closing the dialog doesn't cancel anything, nor does it approve it. The dialog states the date the upgrade is being done. Status quo is unchanged. Only shady point here is scheduling an OS upgrade like it's a simple Windows Update.

    Windows 10 Question

    It's not approving, its closing the dialog that states when you'll be upgraded, not canceling the upgrade. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Windows 10 Question

    That the window that states your upgrade time and says 'click here to change' ? Shady, sure, but don't see an issue with requiring people to glance at the few dozen words presented on the screen and comprehend what they're clicking on rather than just 'NOPE. BAD. X.'...

    Google is reportedly working on an Amazon Echo rival, but not with Nest

    With an Echo and 2 Dots in place, hard to see this doing well in our household barring some crazy pricing for good hardware.

    Amazon Echo

    Yeah. It's just an Echo with a different featureset. Forgoes the nice speaker for outputs. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Set mine up. It's so dainty. Could have staged this photo better, but here's a size comparison. Like the Echo, it just works.

    Ordered a 2nd Dot. Estimated shipping is 7/27, lol. First one is shipping this week.

    Wife already wants to order a second Dot, we're wrestling with ideas of how to place them all over the house, get connected lighting solutions, etc. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Amazon Echo

    It's a natural gating to the ordering, capping it at the number of Echos in circulation is all, for now. It's an Echo without the nicer speaker, it's standalone. The Echo doesn't process much itself, its 100% connected, voice processing aside from the wakeword isn't done on the device even.

    Can see us ordering a couple dots. Just one ordered for now though. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Microsoft HoloLens

    That's not an end-user price. It's akin to buying into v1 of Google Glass. A consumer version is probably years away.

    Good value but too high for us to justify a second.

    Amazon Echo

    Available to all. Has over 18k reviews, wow. Don't think we'll be getting a second at $180, but a decent sale could get us to bite.

    Was pinged to do a review, wonder if it is getting a traditional product page soon.

    Windows 10 Insider Preview

    No problems with Windows 10 here after months of use aside from a video driver after buying a bleeding edge card. It's a solid OS even today.

    Did you get the Windows 10 upgrade notice?

    As they should, it's not even released yet and usually need to be out for some time to be vetted. Took me about 2 minutes to revert to my previous OS from the technical preview the other night.
