Modern Dad says Echo Dot is the best Alexa ...

You almost can't go wrong picking any of the three versions of Amazon Echo. That's the official name, of course, for the little connected speaker thing that we affectionately refer to as Alexa. But the simple fact is that there are three of them, at different price points.

So you have a decision to make, and one that's even more important given that we're smack in the middle of the holiday gift-giving season.

If you've got 2 minutes, I'll walk you through my favorite of the bunch. That's less time than it takes to order an Echo, actually — and it goes even quicker if you use Alexa to order another Echo. (But that's a whole different layer of Alexa inception, and another video for another time.)

Currently, there's no Echo app for Windows PC or Mobile, but that's no excuse! Here's how to set up your Echo or Echo Dot for Windows 10 via the web app on your browser.

So get to it!
