I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

The Amazon Echo, in situ.

Chris Monroe/CNET

Until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time tonight, you can smarten up your home for less.

In celebration of two years of folks talking to their Amazon speakers, the company is offering its Amazon Echo, which our reviewers called "one of the best connected home products money can currently buy" for $140.39, $40 off its regular price of $180.

Since the original Echo shipped in 2014, the company has followed up with smaller and less expensive siblings, the Echo Dot and Echo Tap.

Sorry UK and Australia dwellers; it's a US-only offer.
