Why Apple’s co-founder loves this Amazon device – CNBC

Rather than navigating a confusing app landscape, Wozniak said that when he has a question or needs to complete a task, he finds it easier to just speak it out loud to his Echo.

You can just say, ‘Get me an Uber,’ and it does … you can say, ‘Get me some paper towels,’ and if it knows your last order on Amazon, it orders it right there,” he said. Wozniak said he ordered his second Echo by telling his first Echo to “order me an Echo.”

Wozniak isn’t the only person excited about the device. In December, Amazon said the Echo was the best-selling item across all $100-plus products on Black Friday.

When asked whether he’s an investor in Amazon, Wozniak said, “I don’t do stocks,” adding, “I just like technology when it’s useful for people.”
