what this does is supposedly allow third party products like CQC become native integrations. so no more Skill word.

Dean, please, please, please read up on this and see if it would work. :-D

What's the point? If it can only understand a couple types of devices, then you would have to still use the skill keyword to access everything else, which would make it very inconsistent.

I have an AppleLink t-shirt somewhere and a pair of still functional Bose bookshelf speakers with the Apple logo in the middle of the grill circa same time frame, hmmm...

Old timers will remember that service back when Apple tried to head to head with Compuserve.

thats currently. If there's one thing i'm sure Amazon will do, its expand this.

add me to the /waves money in air to get attention on this.

But it will be a long time before they are remotely sufficient to cover all the possibilities. And of course it'll be device specific, not activity specific, which is the real advantage when using with an automation system. I can't see how it can do anything but complicate matters when you try to explain to the family units, well you have to say it this way if you want to do these things, and this other way if you want to do those things.
