So now the HomePod is two generations behind in this space? At least it will display some swirly colours on the top when you try to ask Siri something. (And don't forget it's four times the price.)

Apple is completely missing the boat on the TV/home space due to their insistence on high-price items.

Apple TV is great, and worth it, but tons of people are going to go with the $40 stick thing instead.

NO ONE is going to buy HomePod. lol. Disaster in the waiting, being like $400. This thing is going to fail harder than the iPod HiFi.

And then because they're too expensive and no one buys them, Apple doesn't rev the hardware. See: AirPort.

Then they cancel the product.

Apple *had* an ChromeCast Audio / Sonos thing years ago with Airport Audio. But never followed through with a cheap one you could put on every speaker in your house.

I think I'm going to try one out.

I actually still use my iPod HiFi, too! Didn't buy that, tho, it was a freebie.
