I voted hot by mistake. Please imagine the deal-temp as about 5 degrees colder.
I really don’t understand the mixed opinions for these. People either seem to think they are FBI surveillance devices or a waste of money.
I’ve a show a dot and an echo and I bought my partner the spot.
They are all used daily for a variety of reasons and I’ve more than got my money’s worth.
Good deal, hot 🏻

I wonder how well these are selling. I feel like the Spot still needs another £20 or so knocked off of it.
I really like these but I can’t see how it is more than a £50 item. It’s a modern day more capable version of the joggler which I don’t recall ever being this expensive.
Is there anyway to use skype with them? Thank you

I agree. Utility wise, the Spot feels closer to Dot than the Echo (which gets a bit more of a pass because it has a decentish speaker). I have a couple of Echos - but they only get turned on when we want to listen to music etc. I don't need an always on alarm clock with a camera.


The Show? Blimey that's almost as ugly as the first generation Kindle.
Extra £5 with a £50 top-up makes this a little cheaper:

The Joggler was £149.99 on release in 2009, which is closer to £200 now when taking inflation into account.

Maybe so, but the point was that the Jogger had never been the price that the Echo Show is.

A lot of people on HUKD got the show for £89 when they dropped them to £139 last time, but left an active discount code in place for £100 off when buying 2, so £178 for 2.

Mine actually ended up costing £53.99 each (bought 2), so very comparable if you're comparing against the best ever price Jogger vs best ever price Show.

For myself, this sort of thing can be very helpful as I have severe arthritis and it is so much easier to have something like this to use at certain times. Never thought I would have so much pain later in life and even though I take Zomorph, it does very little to help, so I end up relying on things such as these on offer.

Juggler was £149 new. Very similar style device without voice control and had one for a while

With inflation the Show at its current price is probably far cheaper but that should be the case with most tech

I don't see them as surveillance devices but Amazon are knocking out these deals for a reason. The data gathered is 100% more useful for targeting more stuff than the margin they make on these devices.

Thy knock out deals because they are in a battle with the likes of Google for the home. Now if you want to talk about surveillance, lets get started on Google...!
If you want the facts, look into exactly what echo's do and don't transmit to the mothership. I would explain it, but I've done so too many times to too many tin foil aficionados.

It's the potential for these devices to be used as surveillance devices that makes some people paranoid, not necessarily whether it is actively listening or watching. Personally, I take the stance that if you think, for example, that by using a VPN it's not possible to monitor your Internet traffic, or that it's not possible for someone else to view your cloud documents without permission, or that yes, your listening devices are, well, listening to you then you're being naive.

With that in mind, go ahead and enjoy the convenience that they provide, so long as you have nothing to hide.

Drop your Mic if you want. There's another 7 in my echo listening out for you.
Hi all. Any tech savvy people here?
I bought this for my bathroom. The bathroom socket is either a 2 pin 115 or 230 volt. But the 15v echo spot UK plug won't work. I've obviously used an adapter to make it fit the socket.
If I cannot use it in the bathroom I'm going to have to send it back

Hi.
I would like to plug my echo spot in the bathroom 2 pin razor socket.
I used an adapter but it did not work.
I think the UK echo spot plug is 15v and the razor bathroom socket is 115v or 230v.

Cheers in advance.

Generally the sockets are low power and the internal fuse limits the power draw for anything much more than an electric shaver. I’m not an expert on this and I’m sure someone else will give you a much more detailed analysis, however not being able to use it in the bathroom at least means that the surveillance chaps at Amazon won’t have to listen to you dropping the kids off at the pool.

Lol.
Thanks though.

Shame no one knows. It's the same as the amazon Alexander. Surely some has it in their bathroom? I have the echo dot in there now but it's low voltage and has USB facility.
It's truly unbelievable that anyone still makes "tin foil hat" jokes after all the revelations and leaks about mass surveillance. What more proof do you need? Mass surveillance is categorically happening. And anyone who thinks Amazon cloud servers are even remotely secure enough to be "100% private" from all parties knows nothing about network or computer security.

The sheer madness of willingly installing a sophisticated wiretap in your own home is beyond my understanding. Orwell's Telescreen is quite literally brought to life.

Edit: But please... continue spitting on all of our civil liberties so you can ask "Alexa... can cats eat pancakes?"

Truth is.
99.9% of people really don't care if we are being tapped or not.
What's the worst they will find out about us..we made an Un pc joke oe watched a few Ben Dover movies. So what.
I think the whole 'protect yourself from Big Brother' nonsense is being promoted by a bunch of no life having wannabes who want to sound like they have loads of important mysterious things in their life to hide

Same people who always say 'I have so many haters'

"I have to protect my privacy because I have so much that needs protecting. ..oh I'm so important "
