Smart window blinds start selling by IKEA

IKEA has lanched low-cost smart window blinds.

More and more smart home devices are entering the market.

It would be nice to have one control center for all the stuff, requiring to have one common protocol to talk to the different devices.

Kohler has put Alexa in the bath room.

Providing support for health care is also an option, of course.

The main reason is that the flickr service will no longer be for free if you have more than 2000 pictures.

And it is also quite different compared to instagram.
