How does this Echo thing work work on a login/account basis? Is it always connected to one person's account? Does it recognize multiple people and connect their actions to each individual account? Authentication? Ability to authorize transactions?

You choose Echo's name. Alexa is just an example.

$99 for prime members. I'll give it a whirl. If it doesn't work well, then I'll return it. No risk. I'm hoping Echo understands me better than Siri. I always thought I spoke clear, but Siri often misunderstands me.
