    This is slick! This Sunday while you are prepping for the big game, you can order your Super Bowl Domino's Pizza using your Amazon Echo! You will first need to enable the Domino's skill on your Amazon Echo Prime account (and configure an easy order setting for the pizza), but after that you are all set to get the party started!

    “Alexa, open Domino's and place my Easy Order.” Yum!

    So you have to login to your computer, futz around filling out some crap to set up your "Easy Order" so you can turn your head and say "Order me Pizza"!?!?!?!

    Just saying "Ok Google now, call Dominos" and speaking to a human just seems a lot more efficient and quicker to me. What if you want to add something to your next "Easy Order"?
    Login, change your easy order, blablabla... 'Order me pizza'.

    I must be getting old.
    ;)

    Once you have set up your "easy order" the first time, then from then on you don't have to set anything up again (assuming you are ordering the same pizza). You simply just tell her to order it and it's done.

    That's what I said. We don't always order the same thing. So I'd have to login to change my order just so I can be cool and order by voice? Nah...

    I'm with ya. Sometimes you want a pep other times mush and sausage. Technology isn't always faster than doing it the old fashioned way.

    You guys sound old! lol!

    If you have a favorite pizza, or just grab several of the same pizzas at one time for parties, then this could be a mildly useful feature.

    I would poo-poo this feature too, if it were the only thing the Echo does. The point is simply that they keep adding on more features that make it even more useful. If they don't start with the "Easy Order" then it can't ever get to the point where it can eventually understand something more complicated, like ordering multiple different custom pizzas, or... Chinese delivery! ;)

    I am old but I'm also a hardcore nerd. I just think if you have to preset it up...it's lame. Give me full on ordering like you said.
    I have Hue lights which would be nice to voice control (I believe echo does). Not anti-Echo.
    I am anti-Dominos, though. There is a reason the once mighty Domnios is a shell of its former self and they've have to scrap all their old recipies and come up with new ones. At least they DID and survived (unlike the slowly dying Pizza Hut).
    Not to mention I am a pizza snob. I live, I kid you not, 1 mile from 7 DIFFERENT PIZZA JOINTS (expand to 1.5 and there is a Dominos).
    It's sickening actually.

    I am old. I'm not lucky to have that many that close or maybe I do? All the chains are crap pizza to me. Frankie's in NO or Danny Boys in River.
