Amazon.com made the surprising move during the Super Bowl 50 broadcast to premiere a commercial featuring Amazon Echo, its hardware-based virtual personal assistant. The National Football League championship game has become a favorite television event for advertisers, and this year a 30-second commercial cost as much as $5 million. Amazon bought some of that Super Bowl on-air time to show millions of people who may have not seen it before what the Echo is all about. The Echo's early success has been built in large part on its features. The device is similar to the Apple Siri and Microsoft Cortana virtual personal assistants. But it is also a stand-alone speaker that can play a user's favorite tunes. Plus, it plays audio books and supports smart home integration, making the Amazon Echo a fairly versatile device. This slide show covers some of the Echo's more significant features and shares some of the author's experiences as an owner of the device and his views on why anyone might seriously consider buying Amazon's take on the virtual assistant.
