Interesting article with seemingly huge potential

Still trying to figure out how UCIC makes any money post-failure of “The Ubi” to become popular…

I played with it a couple of weeks ago when I found it under Alexa skills. Like any skill you need a keyword to activate, so it more of a novelty for me at this point since it is not full integration. It can do wildcards and wiki like dissertations and replicate SmartThings and Harmony functions. If I can figure out how to replicate the goodnight Ubi report using Alexa for the information output instead of the Ubi, I might find it useful.
