Sonos Trolls Apple on HomePod Launch Day with a Popular Meme

The Verge's Nilay Patel describes the HomePod as a "lonely" piece of technology, asking whether "beautiful sound quality [is] worth locking yourself even more tightly into a walled garden" of Apple's services. Apple has finally followed Amazon, Google and Microsoft by launching a smart speaker with a voice-controlled artificial intelligence assistant.

Here's a comparison of both devices.

So can Siri take on Alexa? Siri also converts measurements, reads text messages out loud and helps with translations. The question is: will hardcore music fans embrace voice control the way more casual fans have?

Google Home, which features the creatively named Google Assistant, can link to multiple Google accounts so you can check your calendar or manage reminders.

A waveform display appears at the top of the cylinder base, letting a user know that Siri is listening, and it doubles as a control pad. Users can ask it questions and tell it to do things. The basic Amazon's Echo costs around $100, and while Echo is in a lesser league when it comes to sound, if you're a more casual listener of music you frankly may not give a hoot.

Snow totals hold true to Storm Team 27 forecast
A winter storm warning remains in effect until Thursday morning, with 8 to 12 inches expected in the Glens Falls region. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.

Google Assistant has multi-voice support to provide individuals' schedules, playlists, traffic details, and other personalized data upon request. Apple has marketed HomePod's superior audio quality as its defining feature, and some have wondered how well the speaker will be able to project itself in retail settings which are often noisy and crowded. It also senses when it is being moved to another location in the house. But if you've got a particular playlist in Spotify you want to play on your HomePod, you can play it - you'll just need to do it from your iOS device. That's why the HomePod can not be configured with anything other than an iOS device.

The Google Home Max lets users shop using just their voice. HomePod is also able to integrate with Apple's Home app for iOS, letting you control HomeKit accessories such as light switches and garage door openers. Users can play music from Apple Music or use their to stream content directly from their music library using Siri. Unlike the HomePod, the Google Home Max works with Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, iHeart Radio and other services. Audiophiles will appreciate that it has a woofer with a custom amplifier and seven tweeters. "Seriously." when Apple Music launched in 2015.

Select Apple Authorised Resellers, including Best Buy in the US; Argos, Dixons Carphone (Currys PC World), John Lewis, Shop Direct (Very and Littlewoods), EE and Apple Premium Resellers in the United Kingdom; and The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Myer and Telstra in Australia, have also started selling the HomePod locally.

The 6.8-inch tall HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that is touted to continuously analyse the music and tune the low frequencies dynamically.
