Context: The Amazon Echo is a futuristic home device which is intended to aid the home user in their daily operations. A secondary and unintentional capability of the product is that it is always listening and always recording its users as a means of readying for the next set of instructions.

Potential Relevance for the Future: The Amazon Echo signifies a turning point towards traditionally futuristic home improvements, also playing into traditionally dystopian ideas of surveillance and technology.
