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.
