Apple HomePod

The new home entertainment system by Apple

Nick Abouzeid- Words at Product Hunt ✌️
I'm terribly excited for a standalone Apple speaker. As much as I love my Bose bluetooth speaker (and as much as Siri needs some serious help), being able to hear my notifications read to me from across the room will be great.

I'm excited about the HomePod. It will fit well in my Apple ecosystem. It will also bring along a better Siri, fixed a few notches, long overdue. It’s still very much an Echo or Home competitor, but Apple’s choosing to focus on music instead of the hodgepodge of features touted by Google and Amazon.

Apple HomePod is a great example of how Apple has integrated Beats into their company, launched a new product line, and still stayed true to what they believe. Apple has been in home entertainment for a long time with iTunes, Apple TV, etc., but this hardware gets me personally excited as an audiophile! I love the software-driven approach to how they're tack… See more
