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.

What next for Echo?
« on: June 25, 2016, 01:01:46 am »
What is the next "thing" to get owners or potential owners excited about owning an Echo?

Seems there is a lot of possibility but are we in an Apple Newton conundrum...

Learning to laugh at oneself and with others is good for your soul.

What's next?  VIDEO, of course!  How? What? When?   ???

Not sure, but pretty sure it will be something else to BUY!

That's easy... Networking
Eight being able to network, multiple echo devices together or developing products that are just Mic/Speakers stations which rely commands from anywhere in the home through the "master" echo device. 

This give you whole home music, potential for surround sound and much much more!!  NETWORKING, NETWORKING, NETWORKING!!!

Of course, Networking!  If only my Echo devices could contact my NAS server music folder!  It may be an even longer time coming.  Amazon doesn't want it to be too easy to NOT buy music from them.

I like this.  Seems there is untapped potential here...

syncing would be good but I think I would like to see voice calling with the next version of the echo.

+1. I'm at least hoping for Plex integration which I believe is on the way. I would much rather have Echo be able to access my music library but since Amazon is in the business of selling music and cloud space, I don't see that happening any time soon.

Hmmmmmm....that sounds like it could be exactly what I've been saying is needed to quell all the complaints about Alexa-enabled devices not being general-purpose web search tools.
