    Hi Adam, I enjoy your podcast and listen almost every week. I felt that in this last episode you missed an excellent opportunity to discuss homekit in a wider context. The way that I interpreted your listener’s question was that he is starting from scratch and wondering what types of digital products work best in the home and will be necessary in the future to actually build into homes. Instead of talking about servers and software, it might have been more helpful for listeners to discuss generally what are the best tasks that products like homekit can do. Maybe in the future you can devote a program or part of a program to discussing these things. For example, what are the digital priorities for a home these days: home security, garage door opener, climate control, lighting, home entertainment? Are there things that digital products do better and conversely are there things in a home that digital products really cannot or will not be able to do in the future? Thank you, Mark Baker
