Star-Lord’s Walkman with Headphones That Is Not Actually A Walkman

Here’s the perfect accessory if you plan on cosplaying as Star-Lord AKA Peter Quill. It is a replica of the movie’s, well, almost. Ok, it is not. But it is a Walkman. No, wait. It is not actually a functioning Walkman.

You know how is it with the Amazon Echo. It is a handy personal assistant and an awesome intermediary between you and IoT, but the thing is, it has to stay plugged to the wall outlet.

However, it lacks the support of voice command. Tap, as the product explicitly points out, requires you to press a button to communicate with Alexa. So, at this point, it seems like everything’s fine. Continue reading Amazon Tap’s New OTA Update Makes Buying Echo Looks Kind Of Silly
