Nerdery at its finest (unboxing Amazon Echo)

I fully admit that the Amazon Echo is a product which may prove to be any number of bad things. On one end of the scale, it could just be a waste of money; something which gathers dust and is never used once the polish has worn off (I’m looking at you, Siri). On the other end, it could be what my wife predicts; the precursor to SkyNet and the a sign of the machines’ Judgement Day writ small.

However like all good awesome foolish husbands and unapologetic geeks I preordered one anyway, taking the multi-month wait time in stride.

Today, the wait has ended. I received my Echo and it is (thus far at least) glorious.

More rambling below the jump.
