So the first thing I noticed when upgrading my iPad to OS10 was the new "Home" app plonked onto the default home page of the device.
It looks to me to be a smart move to focus on Home automation at this stage. Us geeks have played with home automation for years but it is absolutely ripe for going mainstream (if it hasn't done already?)
Sure Windows 10 has the wiring to enable home automation and Cortana to augment the control interface - but in general it's profile with regard to home automation is pretty low and with most devices now coming with iOS and Android support 'out of the box' is it in danger of missing the boat?
The one thing that MS seems to have got wrong more times than perhaps it should have is it's timing in relation to understanding when something is about to hit big?
