That’s right. The Amazon Echo is finally available after being available by invitation only for months. You can grab the Amazon Echo for $179 right now and it will ship on July 14.
If you’re not familiar with the Amazon Echo, you can think of it as Siri in your living room. You can ask it questions, tell it to play music, play podcasts, play Audible audiobooks, control Phillips Hue lights, control Belkin WeMo, and much more.
