Meet Alexa. She's the newest voice in a long line of automated devices created to make our lives more simple. And as of Tuesday, she's available to everyone in the form of Amazon's Echo.
"Echo is a device designed around your voice. Simply say 'Alexa' and ask a question or say a command. 'Alexa how many tablespoons are in 3/4 cup?'" an Amazon actor says.
"'Three-quarters cups is 12 tablespoons,'" Alexa says.
