Sears/Kenmore Alfie

Has anyone looked at this thing? Its an Alexa-alike, but stuck working only with Sear's crappy service. Unsurprisingly, it seems to have flopped, and the price went from $39.99 to $4.99. Sears recently gave me one for free with another purchase, I tried to refuse but the sales person started to cry. Doing some googling, surprisingly I found almost no info on hacking it. Seems like the hardware might be useful for something, its got a battery, wifi, mic, and speaker.

Here's the only discussion of hacking I found:

Here's the FCC page:
