This reminds me of Jibo, but with slightly less creepy factor.

$199 (and $99 for prime members) seems reasonable. I hope they open an API so this can hook into my iOS devices and other tech in the home like Nest.

@rrhoover this and the Fire phone makes me wonder whether Amazon wants to follow a Google strategy in hardware, but in-house rather than acquisitions.

@rrhoover IMHO - Amazon APIs are pretty transparent even when not explicitly "open". Haven't messed with other Fire devices, but Kindle had some cool integrations off the bat.

@rrhoover API may expose more chance for malware or NSA to listen to the home... scary.

@mave99a I was going to add that as well... Nice try NSA. :)

@rrhoover UBI (http://www.theubi.com/) is more similar, but with its $299 price tag, lame speaker it's less interesting.
@atroyn my thoughts exactly. They're trying really hard to keep up with google, but keeping it all in house isn't a smart differentiator...

The most cringe video I've ever seen. But looks like a really cool product! Thanks for the Hunt!

@erikfinman agreed with the video - It was somehow regressive for both genders. I'm actually a little nervous if the team was tone deaf enough to release this video, there will be implicit sexism in the product too :(
