Best tech gift for the 2016 holidays
If you’re reading this, honey, you can add this to my holiday list. In fact, if you just want to pick one holiday tech gift, this is the one.
Maybe it doesn’t have the new product luster, but it is still a cool product nonetheless. Alexa, play Pandora Top 40 hits. Make it louder. Make it lower. You know, Amazon’s Amazon Echo, the eager listener to your every command.
Now, it’s listed on Amazon for $139.99 instead of the regularly listed $179.99. It comes in white or black although I prefer black if anyone is listening or reading. What is nice is it can play free streaming music, such as Amazon Music, Pandora, Spotify, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.
It will also report traffic and weather along with sports scores. You can get even deeper by controlling your lights, thermostats and other Nest and smart devices. You know, really tech service out!
I’m not going to wait for Google Home or a possible Apple product. I’ve seen my neighbor play with his Echo and it’s like another family member, one who has all the answers and entertainment solutions. Love it and I want it! Best tech gift for the 2016 holidays.
