Amazon Reveals New Echo Look, An Echo With Camera

Today Amazon announced a new member to the Echo family of personal assistance.

The new device has a camera and is called the Echo Look it will retail for $199

Not too Much About Security

While the look has a built in camera it does not seem to be too much about security and more about fashion, entertainment and similar stuff but Amazon stressed that the Echo Look will be receiving constant updates so I will guess more robust security features are incoming.

I have tried every third party iOS keyboard including Microsoft Word Flow, Fleksy, SwiftKey, Swype, Microsoft Hub, TouchPal, Typeeto, Clipped among other. Some of them are very good and some are not.

But yesterday I installed Googles Gboard and finally I found a third party keyboard worth using.

Gboard allows you to search google directly from the keyboard without leaving the app you are using. It can also search for images, gifs and even emojis. The keyboard is fast and it also has a built in Swype style text input.

After using it for the last 24 hours I can say I am hook. This is a super convenient keyboard.
