Apple To Open Up Siri To Developers, Release An Amazon Echo Competitor (bgr.com) 82

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BGR: According to a new report from The Information, Apple is finally ready to let Siri grow up. Specifically, the publication relays that Apple will finally offer official Siri APIs to developers, thus paving the way for third-party integrations, the kind that Amazon Echo users can't seem to get enough of. Things like ordering an Uber or pizza are currently impossible, because Siri is locked down by Apple. What's more, Apple is also reportedly working on a standalone device meant to compete with the Amazon Echo and Google's recently unveiled Google Home. If that's true, it's huge news -- Apple has been lacking any kind of smart home hub until now, but a Siri-powered device would be a serious play to get Apple into our homes. Google is the latest tech giant to announce a virtual home assistant. It unveiled Google Home, a small round gadget with microphones and speakers that listen and respond to your questions and commands.

For example the non-profit can own his house, car, boat, etc and provide for his use free of charge. This protects his assets while still giving him control of them, on top of this it is deducted from the non-profit as an operating expense. Remember, a non-profit can spend 90% of it's income on operating expenses and 10% or less on the charitable actions.

It does not follow from the fact that non-profits can be abused in this way that Gates is abusing his.
