Apple HomePod release date delayed: What to buy if you were waiting for the new smart speaker
The HomePodboasts of a huge range of features: beautiful sound, a small, beautiful build, and the ability to control it all with your voice.
But since that presentation in summer, all of those companies have done something to address the problems that Apple accurately – if a little hubristically – pointed out.
The consequence of sticking speakers into such a small box – especially by companies who haven't really had any history in audio – appears to be that the sound is small, too.
As such, the only real way that an Echo or a Home could replace a HomePod is if you were planning on using it primarily as a voice assistant you can talk to in your house.
The speakers are perfect for that – loud and clearly audible, just not with enough quality to happily listen to music.
Amazon Echo Plus, £109.99, Amazon Google Home Max, $399 (and probably the same amount in pounds), due to be released in 'early 2018' When Apple introduced the HomePod, it took a very explicit swipe at Sonos.
that's quite similar to Sonos's TruePlay technology, which uses the speaker in your phone instead and only adjusts itself at the time you set it up, but provides much the same function.
Unlike some of the other products on this list – like, particularly, the Echo – its look is such that you won't necessarily mind having it out on your shelf or kitchen counter.
£199, Amazon The Sonos One provides almost everything that the HomePod will: beautiful sound, the smarts to power it, the ability to listen to Apple Music or anything else, and a built-in voice assistant.
Gadget calls the police after listening to man 'beat and threaten to murder' girlfriend
A man who allegedly beat his girlfriend and threatened to kill her has been arrested after a “smart speaker” alerted police.
Police say the gadget overheard the incident and recognised one of the alleged attacker’s remarks as a command, and proceeded to call 911.
The 28-year-old allegedly got angry over a text message his girlfriend had received, and accused her of cheating on him before waving a gun and threatening to kill her.
[The victim] stated she thought she was going to be killed or shot.” Smart home technology is growing increasingly popular and, though it potentially helped save a life in this particular incident, there are fears about just how much they can learn about us, and how they can be used for advertising purposes..
“This amazing technology definitely helped save a mother and her child from a very violent situation.” The Independent's bitcoin group on Facebook is the best place to follow the latest discussions and developments in cryptocurrency.
UPDATE: Family devastated after woman, teen killed in freak accident
UPDATE APRIL 9: The Clark County coroner identified those killed as 24-year-old Daniella Suarez and 15-year-old Julian Castillo, both of Las Vegas.
Words aren't enough to describe how family and friends of the victims are feeling right now.
The 15-year-old is known for drawing skills, his goofiness and witty sarcasm.
Jessica Soll, best friend and coworker of Daniella, says, "We were all going to go out tonight to celebrate her birthday."
Nevada Highway Patrol troopers say that a Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling southbound on U.S. 95 when the left rear tire separated from the vehicle and entered the northbound travel lanes.
The front passenger, a 24-year-old woman, and the rear passenger, a male juvenile, died from their injuries.
CES 2018: The world's biggest gadget show gives up on gadgets
Some companies still have to actually make the gadgets to access and live on the platforms, of course - but the real money is in allowing the smart home technology to talk to each other, not in manufacturing those things.
Virtual reality - which was always fairly gadgety, requiring people to strap things to their head and ensconce themselves in an entire world - was hyped lots and delivered little, at least so far.
When the idea of the connected home and the internet of things first caught on, it came in bizarre forms like web-controlled pet feeders and shoes that spy on you.
(This is not entirely over — today a press release was sent out about a 'connected wine preservation system.) Gradually, with time, the gadgets have receded.
As people let more of this kit into their house, they're also asking more of it - like that it won't secretly use its computing power to launch hacking attacks on entire countries, for instance, or to mine bitcoin.
The battle to see whether those new upstarts will unseat the traditional car companies to build the electric vehicles is still ongoing.
the hardware will matter, but the cars themselves are far from gadgets, with an intense focus on how they look and how they are built emerging from many of the companies currently building their vehicles of the future.
Now, they appear to have moved towards positioning themselves as the best thing for other platforms: clear, bright, advanced ways of letting people watch content from elsewhere.They might offer some future for the gadgets and their makers: if the future belongs to the platforms, they're going to need something to exist on.
