For the first time in more than 20 years, Oprah's entire list of Favorite Things is available for sale on an exclusive Amazon custom home page, and this year's roundup includes an entire section dedicated to "the techie" in your life.
One of the more prominently featured products on the list is the Amazon Echo smart wireless speaker, a cloud-connected personal assistant that responds to the name "Alexa" and takes voice commands to control various parts of your home: you can ask her to play music, control the temperature, activate smart light bulbs, and a lot more.
Amazon is taking $30 off the price of the Amazon Echo for today only, dropping the cost to $150 with free shipping for everyone.
So who could have guessed that Oprah is all about smart-home automation?
Well it turns out she fell in love with the idea after watching Scarlett Johansson's sentient operating system in the movie "Her," and when the President of the Oprah Winfrey Network Erik Logan put her on to the Echo in real life, she went head over heels.
