You gain insight into an item when activating it blindly.
Benefit: If you are successful when activating an item blindly (that is, Use Magic Device DC 25), you actually learn the true command word or activation mechanism for the item you are using and, thus, no longer need to activate it blindly.
Notes: You still may need to make a Use Magic Device check to use the item if you don’t meet the normal requirements for it, you only get to skip the activate blindly check.
