1) All-New Amazon Echo Plus

Ever feeling too lazy to go up and get your phone to order a pizza or to get up to get the remote to change channels. Well Amazon have made this nifty gadget that is a very cool Christmas gift to give to any loved one, due to its handy functionalities and voice recognition abilities.

This gadget is actually a voice-controlled assistant /and Bluetooth speaker /friend

/…everything <3

Features

  • Easy to setup
  • New Generation Technology
  • Can be controlled using the remote
  • Settings can be altered with the Amazon Alexa Iphone and Android App.
  • Amazon Echo Voice – Alexa (Good voice recognition that gets better over time)
  • Nice looking
  • Versatile with ever-growing Skills selection

Difference Between Echo and Echo Dotamazon echo dot technology

The main difference between the echo and Echo Dot is the speaker…

The Echo Dot is essentially a decapitated Amazon Echo, without the large speaker underneath it.

Instead, the Echo Dot has a worse off speaker that sounds very tinny.

Despite this it’s still just as functional, and offers even better audio playback options than the original Echo as it was designed in mind to be used with an external speaker.

‘Which one would I buy?’

Probably the Echo as it looks nicer and makes a perfect wireless speaker whereas you can not really use the dot without an external speaker connected to it.

 

Do I Need An Amazon Echo To Use An Echo Dot And Vice Versa?

In short, the answer is no.

Whether you chose to buy the tall Echo or the small Echo Dot you do not need both for them to work.

If you buy the Echo you can purchase several echo dots to place around your house if you have several rooms and if Alexa is finding it difficult to hear you. Or…

You could just purchase one for the room you spend most your time in. If you are going for the one off option I do recommend just going for the standard Amazon Echo.

Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features and skills. Just ask Alexa to control compatible smart devices, request an Uber, order a pizza, and more.

4) Xbox One X and Xbox Scorpio – The World’s Most Powerful Console

Whether your a boy or girl everyone loved the Xbox 360 and in my opinion – won the console generation during its era.

However with the introduction of the Xbox one and PlayStation 4, Xbox lagged behind ps4 as some deemed Xbox one to be underwhelming.

Its hardware was mediocre and was not future proof at all, and was outperformed by its rival.

Now Xbox has released the new Xbox One X that is set to light up the gaming industry with its powerful components.

Project Scorpio?

Be the first to experience the limited edition Xbox One X designed for the biggest fans. The new Xbox One X is slimmer and better than ever before!

  • What’s in the box: Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition 1TB Console, Project Scorpio Edition Wireless Controller (xbox controller), Xbox One X Vertical Stand, 1 month Game Pass subscription trial, 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial, HDMI cable (4K capable), AC Power cable
  • Games play better on Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition. Experience 40% more power than any other console
  • Custom design console for the biggest fans, “Project Scorpio” inscribed on the console and controller 
  • 6 teraflops of graphical processing power and a 4K Blu-ray player provide more immersive gaming and entertainment.
  • Play with the greatest community of gamers on the most advanced multiplayer network
  • Works with all your Xbox One games and accessories
  • Works with 4K – games run smoothly, look great, and load quickly

The Xbox Scorpio price is the same as the Xbox One X. Microsoft have done really well with this new Xbox and it pushes Xbox to contend with new PS4 pro in the latest console war.
