The real story is that Apple, despite having Siri, has done nothing in this space. But they did give us more dongles, so it's not a complete loss.

Alexa's integration process is really a no-brainer, which is why they're going to win.


It's so easy and cheap that even Goober could follow the tutorial.

Apple fucked up by making Siri so limited. Also by completely overpricing the AppleTV.

>If it’s true that only “a third of them turn to the tech three times or more every single day”, that means two-thirds of Echo users use it fewer than three times a day.

Yes John that is exactly how statistics work.

Siri sucks. I can't even set a timer with Siri unless I have an internet connection.

Even Google has figured that simple shit out.

Incidentally, you can't set a timer with Alexa without an internet connection, either.

I get where you are going with that but Alexa having the same failing doesn't make Siri suck any less.

That all of these voice assistants can't do basic things like alarms or timers without constant connectivity to home base is an epic fail.

Google figured it out, why can't Apple and Amazon?
