Las Vegas Casino Adding Amazon Echo to All Hotel Rooms

While I am sure there are a lot of benefits of having an Amazon Echo in your hotel room, it's a bit creepy when you think about it from a privacy standpoint.

Wynn Las Vegas and Amazon announce plans to equip all 4,748 hotel rooms at Wynn Las Vegas with Echo, Amazon's hands-free voice-controlled speaker. The introduction of this technology into every guest room, beginning this month with installation in suites, will be an industry first in the world, allowing guests of Wynn Las Vegas to control various hotel room features with a series of voice commands via Alexa, the brain behind Echo.
