BEN APPLE!!!!

This is the result of Tim Cook's Apple caring more about "social justice" (aka racism and sexism that supports the chosen people) instead of doing products.

The HomePod is already a failure.

But the later HomePad will be awesome. New category: smart speakers, but with a display! A whole new category!

There may/may not be legitimate criticisms for this, but I never understood the logic that companies can't multitask.

Setting aside the wisdom of pursuing those goals for a moment... companies can multitask. Tim Cook, it seems, cannot.

They certainly can but only when it lies within their core competency. "Social justice" is not in Apple's job description and they derive no economic benefit from pursuing it. Their job is to make technology products, not conduct political lobbying.

If Tim Cook wants to "multitask" his way to social justice, I strongly encourage him to remove himself from Apple and launch a foundation to pursue his precious social agenda.

Apple had a good run. Sad to see it come to an end like this.

What do you think, takeover by Dell, Sony, CorelDRAW!?
