I reviewed the first gen Echo Dot only four months ago and now Amazon has just announced a 2nd generation version. Wow, that was fast!

amazon-echo-dot-6

When the Amazon Echo was released last year, I was mildly interested but not enough to actually order one.  Then when it seemed like everyone was singing the Echo's praises, I became even more interested.
