Discussion Summary

Explorer Rosalie reports on her user experience from Amazon's first Echo to newer Amazon products and Alexa skills, including "Let's Chat".

She explains that "Lets Chat" is an interactive app covering a variety of topics in a question and answer dialogue. Rosalie is especially thrilled as she describes 'old time radio' broadcasts that she remembers from her childhood and early youth. 

The group discusses other interactive, voice operated devices and raise a few questions that reflect hesitancy to have such a device present in the home.
