The Amazon Echo really could be life changing

  That sounds like a bit of an exaggeration doesn’t it?  We often refer to things as being life changing.  Take our coffee machine for instance.  Every morning when we grind the beans and then make that perfect coffee we mutter “life saver, thanks” or feel that mug of steaming hot caffeine has just changed
