    Pretty sure this is going to be mind blowing inspite of people always assuming all of their products to fail. Like iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods.

    Undoubtedly Apple likes coming from behind in your rear view mirror to create a better version of what’s currently trending, however I would love to see them be an innovator in first to market products that are more visions of the future. I guess their current approach is a safer one allowing others to take on the risk while Apple cleans up for its investors. Smart business wise, but it seems Apple is moving away from creativity, and more towards marketing, packaging, and creating improved versions of what’s already out there. Trust your engineers more and tap into the possibilities. The Jetsons are waiting…,,

    Timing of the release is for all the people that can't think of a Valentine's gift.

    Siri is crap and has actually gotten worse over time.  There is no way I would buy anything that is based on Siri for functionality.

    Aussie pricing? I would like to nominate Apple, for they’re pricing exploitation, for a sour Apple! 🙁

    You can buy a better speaker for 1/2 the price then just use your phone’s “hey Siri” when connected

    I am watching this video but I will not buy it.
    Reason:
    1. Too expensive than Google Home which is less than $100.
    2. Google database is way bigger than Apple database
    3. It supports other third-party apps for lights and other house products.

    Apple needs to come out with a feature or something that nobody else has it. Then I will compare and consider.
    But for now NO WAY.

    I am interested. The third party skills on the echo generally suck… They are not that intuitive. If it delivers bulletproof experience and consistency coughechonotconsistantcough then this stands a chance. The only reason why the echo is popular, is mainly because it's been out for a long time… but it certainly isn't the best experience I have had. Even google home plays me up with home control.

    Home kit is the most robust system out there for controlling your smart devices, its main failing is in the devices supported in the UK.

    You said that Google home does not offer multiple account support. I believe you are wrong because you can sign in with different accounts so that when you or another user makes an order it's able to recognize who the person was. An example when you or someone else says "call mom" it knows whose mom because of the voice recognition, but correct me if I'm wrong here.

    Love apple products but won’t be buying this anytime soon. They need to have an ecosystem of smart speakers to compete with Amazon Echo. They need their version of the dot and spot. I like that the speaker will sound much better than the echo but it will take more than just the speaker sound get my money. For the same price I will be buying 3 echos and a dot to get entire home integration.

    Hey! I watch your apple bytes as I love to injure what's going on in the tech world. Though Definitely not gonna spend that sort of money on something that wouldn't suit my needs. I'm an Android guy! It's the Google Home for me! But I just like to know these things!

    I’m somewhat invested in the apple echo system owning an iPhone, iPad,MacBook and AirPods but HomePod just seems kinda shit given that it won’t even support Spotify. Apple Music is good and all but I get Spotify for free with my mobile plan.
