Dew 2016 gift guide

From Douglas…

While I don’t own an Amazon Echo myself, I have some good friends that do. They have integrated it into their connected home to control lights and other devices and I found it quite intriguing. While the Echo might not be for everyone, I am sure there are people in your life who could greatly benefit from the services it provides.
