We saw. The truth is we saw the writing on the wall when SDK updates stopping coming. I'm still a bit surprised by the decision, especially not to try for version 3 with a much better form factor.

That said, I've been personally spending some time planning our next gen voice interface. It will be microphone agnostic (unlike our current one which is tied to the Kinect), still feature the same great performance and far-field capabilities, and don't hold us to it, but right now we're planning to open source the code for the new voice interface.

This brings me back to the question I posted in another thread, how is integration of Echo progressing? Have you evaluated the Echo Plus with built in Zigbee hub? Looks like it has the tools to become something very useful.
