OK it's time. I just installed the app and it looks like GE and Quirky have their act together and are fixing the horrible launch and cloud issues. This still seems to be the horse to hitch your smart home wagon to if they can work out the kinks and disastrous initial PR.

We're starting to see a backlash of "WiFi connected" devices in the home due to hacking or people remotely logging into your thermostat (jealous ex), garage door or front door, etc.

Not the flop..but the 2-3 seconds shortly after where they show the LSU players supporting him as he limps off.
I can't seem to find a gif of that anywhere and that was almost more awesome than the flop itself.
