Sonos Trolls Apple on HomePod Launch Day with a Popular Meme

Apple's upcoming launch of HomePod has intensified the competition in smart speaker market. Due to the worldwide time difference Australia was the first to receive HomePod, with the United States soon to follow later today.

HomePod will be available in France and Germany this spring.

- Jonathon Bullock (@Jon_Bullock) February 9, 2018What is HomePod? The new Apple HomePod is expected to reach a share of 8.9 percent, while the numbers for Alibaba's and Xiaomi's smart speakers will be 6.3 percent and 5.1 percent respectively.

Powered by the Siri voice assistant, Apple hopes to put the speaker at the center of its HomeKit smart home plans, as the one device to rule not only your playlists, but your entire in-home connected ecosystem. - The speaker features an Apple-designed 4-inch woofer and unique array of seven beamforming tweeters to provide deep base and pure high frequency acoustics. "It brings advanced audio technologies like beam-forming tweeters, a high-excursion woofer and automatic spatial awareness, together with the entire Apple Music catalog and the latest Siri intelligence, in a simple, lovely design that is so much fun to use".




How much will it cost?
"It does more to make music sound better than any other speaker of this kind has ever done before, and it really, truly works". And now with the Homepod currently sold out for its release date, we'll have to wait and see how Apple's sales pan out for the remainder of Q1. Now, when you ask about hiding a body, Siri acts like someone whose recent lobotomy has robbed her of personality and memory.

So can Siri take on Alexa?

Another shared complaint was the HomePod's straitjacket boundaries when using non-Apple apps. It should also be able to hand calls and messages off to other Apple products as seamlessly as iOS and macOS devices can. A single tap in the middle toggles between play and pause on the current track; a double-tap skips forward, while a triple-tap skips back.

Although Apple has now officially entered the "smart" speaker market, Amazon remains the market leader according to a report from research specialist TrendForce. "Anyone else should consider other options".
