    "Two Thunderbolt ports are present in order to facilitate daisy chaining devices. With a reported 20 Gbps total bandwidth (10 Gbps up, 10 Gbps down) the device will most likely be based on the Eagle Ridge chip."

    If it's got 2 Thunderbolt ports, it's Light Ridge. If it has 1Thunderbolt port it might be Eagle Ridge, but could still be Light Ridge. All daisy-chainable Thunderbolt devices must use Light Ridge though.

    The whole WeMo package seems like a good fit to integrate with Siri. Especially the garage door opener.

    I already have speech recognition on my Mac set to respond to "HAL", but with Siri, you could have it respond to "Open the pod bay door please, Siri." :-D

    If I had this, I would have no need to carry keys for anything any more. Just my iPhone. My Prius already uses a smart key that never has to leave my laptop bag, add this to my front door and I'll be set. (My next car will likely be one that allows the iPhone to act as key,) No extra devices.

    The old focus on using automation simply to increase productivity and reduce costs was seen to be short sighted, because it is necessary to provide a skilled workforce who can make repairs and manage the machinery. Thanks.
