I’ve been waiting for something like this for a while, it may not be as good as the video – but the whole concpet really intruiges me. Siri meets the local news.
It has always been an app in my mind. When I leave the geo fence at my house – the app kicks in and has already downloaded my list. “Good morning, Tom” – “its going to be a cold one, I hope you brought a hat.” Tthen proceeds to read me my customized news.
Is not just the same old McNews, but the channels I want and the subject matter I want too. This will include a text-to-speech of the previous night’s high school scores from Twitter, local news stories about the subject’s I stated a likeness to and also any unread text messages or emails. All there – just for me, right when I want it.
This is a neat idea, echo – I just hope the concept “travels” well.
I put my name on the list to get one of these echoes as soon as it comes out – so, if I do get one I will provide a full report.
