Here’s The First Ever Echo Dot Discount, Plus $40 Off the Full-Sized Echo and Tap

The new Amazon Echo Dot is a brilliant little smart home assistant that you can hide in every corner of your home, and Amazon’s taking $10 off the base price for Black Friday. If you’re struggling to think of a gift idea for anyone on your shopping list, this is sure to be a hit with nearly everyone.

And if you were holding out for the full-sized Amazon Echo, complete with its booming speaker, it’s $40 off again right now, while supplies last.

In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, trigger custom IFTTT recipes, order food, and—my personal favorite—read you Jeopardy questions like a robotic Alex Trebek.

The battery-powered Amazon Tap is also $40 off, but it doesn’t feature the always-on microphone of its plugged-in siblings. So unless you really want to take Alexa on the road, you should probably skip it and get one of the other two.

Here’s Your First Amazon Echo Discount of the Year

In spite of all the snark when it first launched, the Amazon Echo is actually really great (and only getting better over time), and Amazon’s discounting it today for the first time since Black Friday.

Use a Raspberry Pi to Add Alexa Voice Search to an Old Phone

Making a little DIY Amazon Echo-like device with a Raspberry Pi is a great project, but one of the downsides is that it requires a button to trigger the service to listen to you. Instructables user MisterM’s solution was to make that button an old telephone.

http://lifehacker.com/build-a-raspbe…

MisterM’s guide uses a British-style Trimphone, but with some messing around you can use his guide as a foundation for just about any retro phone as long as it has a built-in speaker. As you’d probably expect, this takes a lot of finagling to get working, but the end result means you can pick up the phone handset, then ask Alexa whatever you want. Check out the video above for a full demo of how it works. It’s definitely on the ridiculous side of things, but it’s a fun little project nonetheless. Head over to Instructables for MisterM’s full guide.
