Why I Didn’t Buy The HomePod

You know me, when Apple releases a new product, I jump on the bandwagon. This time, I did not.

Apple finally released the Apple HomePod. This is Apple’s premier speaker that everyone is comparing to the Google Home and Amazon.

For $350, this speaker is going to be a really good audio device. I currently do not have a Bluetooth speaker. I am either listening to podcasts or music through my iPhone X speakers, AirPods or in my car. It has crossed my mind to buy a speaker but the maximum I would spend would be around $200. Yes, supposedly this speaker is very high quality, but that is it. To me, that $350 is not worth it to me. Im not 100% against spending that kind of money on a speaker but I want it to be smart. Enter Siri.

Siri is still Siri. If Siri is ever updated, that is when I will spend the extra money on one of Apple’s speakers. The great thing about this device’s smarts, and Siri, is that it can all be updated through software. I don’t expect there to be sequels to the HomePod nearly as often as most of Apple’s products. I really just hope Apple starts paying more attention to Siri as Google and Amazon has done with their platforms.

Sorry HomePod, I’m not saying never, just not today.

Thanks for stopping by!
