Amazon to Introduce Celebrity Voices for Alexa: F*ck Yeah!

Among Amazon’s other product announcements yesterday was one that surprised me. Not the announcement itself, but the fact that it’s taken so long for a company to do this. Amazon is introducing the Samuel L. Jackson celebrity voice for Alexa. At only 99c (introductory price; it will cost $5 later), you can have Samuel L. Jackson talk back to you from your Amazon Echo.

I think there could be a huge market for this. Imagine getting some more A-list celebrities, especially those with recognizable voices, to do this; it could sell a lot more of these devices.

As for me, I want Bob Dylan to give me directions in CarPlay.
