  • We’re Giving Away 10 Amazon Echo Dot Speakers!

    Here at SMA News Today and BioNews Services, we want to promote technologies that help people in the SMA community. In particular, we have found that Amazon Alexa devices can do wonders for SMA individuals.

    With its voice-activated technology and built-in microphone, the Echo Dot from Amazon Alexa can help SMA individuals make phone calls, send messages and do leisurely activities such as listening to music and podcasts.

    To promote this useful technology, we’re giving away 10 Echo Dots to the most active forum users. Over the next 30 days, we’ll be tracking activity on the forums to determine the most engaged users, and the ones who are creating the most effective posts. At the end of this 30-day period, we will reach out to these 10 users to send them their Echo Dots.

    The idea behind this initiative is to provide people in the SMA community with a tool that will help them. Once these users have their Echo Dots, there will be a discussion topic in the forums for them to write about how they use this technology in their daily lives.

    Nevertheless, this initiative is not meant to encourage meaningless discussions on the forums so that people can simply create enough posts to earn their Echo Dots. We’re looking for active forum users who create quality discussion topics related to SMA, and who regularly respond to other people’s posts. Any spammers on the forums will be blocked.

    For more information about posting in the forums and creating discussion topics, check out this guide.

    Great opportunity, don’t miss out!  An Amazon Echo Dot is a great way to test the waters when it comes to smart home devices.  Why buy one when you can win one!  Already own one?  You can always put one in another room and use them like an intercom.  Commenting on the forums is easy with lots of great topics to discuss.  Not finding one you’d like to weigh in on?  Create your own!  We’d love to hear from you, and who knows you could score your very own Echo Dot in the process.
