    Pros: 

    Easy to set up, fun to use with a futuristic feel to your house, control Wemo smart lighting

    Cons: 

    Can't add more than one calendar (yet), some functions crippled in Canada

    Best part for me: coming home at night, I can just shout at my Google Home to turn on the lights instead of stumbling around in the dark looking for the light switch!

@bentossell good one Ben. And when that happens, what will they learn from each other. Fascinating thought.

@nivo0o0 Audience testing showed that HAL9000 would have looked much friendlier if he'd gone for a spectrum of four dots.
