Amazon Echo and Alexa really matter
Anil Dash

Regarding the ‘preferred music service’ example, it’s a bit funny that Amazon is not extending the (Android/Palm) concept of ‘intents’ with simple fallback logic (“alexa, play me song X” can be handled by this list of three skill providers in preference order, so search the first and if it can’t play this song then fall back to searching the second).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
