What do Sports Scores and Star Trek have in common? Not much usually, but today they are both showing up on updates to the Amazon Echo device. Currently, the Amazon Echo supports sports info regarding the NBA and NHL, but Amazon plans to add support for the NFL, MLB, MLS, NCAA basketball soon as well.

To get an Amazon echo taste of Star Trek, just tell Alexa to "live long and prosper" and get a poignant response. Kudos to the folks at Amazon for continuing to keep Alexa updated!

To add to this update, Amazon releases another along the same lines. I've been very impressed with both the quality & frequency in which Amazon pushes out updates for this device. Every 2-3 weeks Amazon comes out with something new to improve this device.
