Buy the Amazon Echo for $149, today only

Amazon is clearly trying to build interest in its smart Bluetooth speaker before the holidays hit. Even though it'll be a bit before it lands at big-box retail locations, Amazon is, just for today, dropping the price on the $179 Echo down to $149. For that price, you get a powerful — if somewhat finicky — voice-controlled personal assistant that can control your smart home appliances, tell you the weather, update your to-do list, and, of course, help you buy things on Amazon. Of course, you'll have to hurry to take advantage of the sale.
