Yeah, but it’s much more convenient. Plus, the shopping list is easily the better function (and it syncs it with your iphone). Usually, when I’m cooking, my hands get all messy and my brain prevents me from touching my phone. So the echo wins that battle every time. And when I’m in the fridge looking at stuff, it’s much easier to rattle off the list of items I need then walk over to my phone and just start typing.
Oh, and I ask it the news in the morning, which is really a neat feature.
