Fing should build a "fingerprint" database of all major IP services, especially ones that stream data (e.g. Alexa, Netflix,YouTube, etc.) with the goal of trying to show outages of services.  Usually, this is country or region specific.  

The idea here is to the be the first to detect major outages, before the actual provider and provide alerts accordingly.  (e.g. Netflix is having trouble in all EU countries); iCloud is having a global authentication issue), etc.  This is in all liklihood an entry into AI, if Fing is not already in this spae already.

This idea expands on the notion of Fing remaining "above the frey" of routers and other devices and services.

    Just learned of a site that you may have heard of, "DownDetector."  This is the basic gist of what I am suggesting. The value-add for Fing is tying the services to what the customer actually owns. If someone does not own any Amazon Alexa devices, then there is no need to automatically surface this information.
