Looks like the single pack is cheaper per unit than the double pack. Price mistake?

yeah, I saw it for $149 as well but didn't post it because I assumed it was a price mistake and should be $249. it is a frum owner after all...

Hey guys, I'm the founder of Nucleus.  I appreciate you being so sensitive about the price mistake but honestly, enjoy!  They're selling it for not much above what it costs us to make it, so this is a great deal (but I'm a little biased).  ;)

If you have any questions for me, I'm happy to answer them.

Welcome! Is what OP said true -- that it can replace the need for buying a stand-alone Alexa?

We worked very closely with Amazon on integrating Alexa into Nucleus (in fact, Amazon later ended up investing in the company).  It should work exactly like an Echo with the following exceptions:
  • When music is playing, Nucleus will have trouble hearing "Alexa" [we're working on a fix]
  • You currently can't play Pandora or Spotify on Nucleus due to licensing issues [also being worked on]

However, it can also do things Echo can't - for example, because we have a screen, you can pause / FF/ rewind songs directly from the screen.

Very cool! Any idea at this time when those fixes might be released?

Hearing "Alexa" during music playback should be within the next few weeks and will be rolled out as a software update.  Pandora/Spotify will take longer.

Just bought a few for my house to use for an intercom system, but haven't had time to set it up yet. Is a call all feature in the works? This is a feature that is more standard with conventional intercoms, and based on reviews is not available yet...

Thanks

Thanks for buying!

It's our most-requested feature so it's something we hope to build soon.  That being said, it will probably be early next year before it is implemented.

Hey Dan, I can't talk publicly but if you hit me up privately (I think you have my email) I'm happy to let you know how we're responding. 

On a side note, I think this article (https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/09/hey-walmart-heres-the-startup-that-inspired-the-thing-amazon-just-launched/) is interesting in light of all the Amazon/Walmart price war posts you've been posting recently...

Quote from: Gizmodo
When I asked Frankel if his company planned to take legal action against Amazon, Frankel wouldn’t say for sure. “Everything is on the table,” he said. “Our preferred approach would be to partner with other companies that are a threat to Amazon.”

Why not do both: Sue their @$$3$ and take your ideas to the competition :D

Also, great thing to somehow get the word out that you got stabbed in the back by Amazon, no one will want to expose themselves to that by collaborating with the Alexa team... Shame on Amazon.

Partnering with the competition may be great retribution but solve the problem of what they did. Legal action may.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.
