Amazon Echo Unchained?
One of the biggest things holding back the Amazon Echo is the proprietary cord.
I was one of the first people to get an Amazon Echo. I pre-ordered mine after seeing a demonstration video showing a typical family using their Echo for all sorts of things throughout their home. What they don't mention in the video is that the Amazon Echo is not exactly portable, so for them to use it throughout their home they would have to keep unplugging it as they move from room to room.
Unfortunately, the Echo only comes with ONE power cord, and it's non-standard, so you can't simply plug it into USB plugs throughout the home. I think Amazon should make it easier for people to move it by using standard low cost USB cords or create some kind of docking system so you can move it quickly from room to room.
