This is really cool, and sadly something a certain other smart speaker will not do.
The HomePod is competing with the Google Home and Amazon Echo. Suggesting otherwise is silliness.
The next wave of computing paradigms is coming, and the Apple Watch is an early indication of where we’re headed.
This comparison is coming up a lot from people critical of my (arguably healthy) skepticism around the HomePod’s ability to make a meaningful impact on the market in its current form. The iPod was criticized for many of the same things I’m saying about the HomePod and look how silly those people seem today.
There are some interesting, and even surprising results in here.
