Amazon Echo is more than just a competitor to Siri or Google Now, it’s supposed to be a voice-controlled hub for your smart home that allows you to control all of your gadgets without needing to use a remote. Unfortunately, the device is still an invite-only purchase but Mashable has been kind enough to answer some of the questions that people have had.
