    This entire product category is just a pretentious money grab.

    I think I would like the homepod if it was the size of the Google Home, and if I can play spotify.

    To Apple’s defense, do people really ask their “smart” speakers for restaurant reviews, food recipes, and calendar events? These info seem much easier to obtain from a screen. While I’m surprised you can’t connect to it via Bluetooth with a non-Apple device, I definitely tend to value overall sound quality (which this speaker has in spades apparently) over how “smart” Siri is, vs Alexa.

    Sounded amazing in store. Found one online for $150 used watched your review, heard I can't use with my Android phone as a Bluetooth speaker. I'll pass

    You can't use it as a speaker for iMac? not true, you can use it as a speaker for any Apple device.
