When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Echo to Bluetooth Speaker

Now that the Echo Dot has been announced and has the ability to connect to a Bluetooth Speaker, any idea if that will be (can be) rolled into the original echo via a software update?

I would not hold my breath waiting for this to happen.  I'd say this is one reason the Dot came out; so they didn't have to do this to Echo, even if they could; (assuming it has the hardware to do it).  Why should Amazon do this if they can now sell Dots for that purpose?  Also, why is the Dot a transmitting device only instead of both a TX and an RX device? (They could have done this if they had wanted to. (I have a tiny BT dual mode TX/RX device and is same size as a TX-only device.)  So they can sell more Echos and new Taps is why.

I believe there is a method to their madness; Amazon is shrewd; not stupid.
