"Never leave home without it."
 And I think the "iHome" rollout (if that's what Apple will be showing in the "white cube" at Flint Center) will be yet again a different scenario.  The actual smart home hardware will eventually be a mix of Apple and third-party components all interacting through a common protocol.  The components might be switched outlets and "smart LED bulbs" that aren't all that visually interesting.  And the HomeKit API in iOS 8 could easily be demo-ed on stage anyway. I think the the...
