Amazon Echo/Show

$229

Show, don’t tell, the saying goes. Amazon took that to heart. Take the helpful home secretary that is Alexa and add video — now this home hub can show you things while it talks to you. Show shows the lyrics to the song you’re listening to, weather forecasts, your security cams and baby monitor. It can also hear you at any time, from any direction. OK, that’s where things start to get weird.
