Reactions to Apple’s HomePod delay to ‘early 2018’ (Apple Byte)

Spread the love



First it was AirPods last year and now it’s the HomePod. What’s going on with Apple? Is the company spread too thin?

    it don't matter, people can talk about how disappointed they are ect.. but the truth is you are gonna buy it anyways.. so basically apple will never change bc the $$$$ keeps coming in regardless of the moves they make, apple fan boys are enablers of this type of stuff

    I wonder if they held back because of the voice recognition for different users that google and Alexa have. Also, maybe they see their errors with not supporting third party apps…we can hope!

    I’m pretty let down by everything apple has been doing lately. In the last year I bought an iPad Pro and the new MacBook Pro but I’m skipping the new iPhones. Might be time to give Android a spin.

    I have no intrest in it. Buti see many who like these items in thrir home, but feel Amazon offers a oroduct that is mire then a music speaker & much cheaper.

    I'm not that disappointed .I think apple should hold off releasing the home pod until it has a screen, and a better version of siri

    I believe that they should wait until it is fully ready to release in so the extended time frame for release is no big deal

    How hard is to make a speaker constantly say "this is what I found on wikipedia"? LOL.
    I asked Siri "what was Paul Walker's character name on the Fast and the Furious" and Siri couldn't answer, while Google told me it was Brian O'Connor and gave lot's of info right away.

    HomePod costs $349. A Google Home, which does basically everything the HomePod can, costs $129. An Amazon Echo costs $99. Ridculous.
    Then again, it's Apple. Offering features competitors have for years, for double the price.

    The problems with apple its the software department, you see it every single year with new updates. Problems with battery issue etc.

    Look, you cannot be mad about apple delaying their release because apple is most definitely not. Apple knows what Apple is: a name. Apple, like Louis Vuitton or Gucci, has developed a very strong and very large consumer base that is dedicated solely to Apple and Apple alone. With this realization, apple is able to do whatever they want and unless they somehow destroy their reputation, people are going to buy their products. All in all, people who are going to buy products such as these are going to be the people who are very devoted to Apple as a brand and they are able to just "overlook" a small setback as this such example.

    Not to mention Apple wants $160 for wireless earbuds. I would maybe pay 130 at the very most.. $350 for a speaker when everyone in the game has one under $200.

    Apple didn’t expect the price war that is currently going on between Google and Amazon, in their Mini and Dots. With smart speaker/home automation still new for most families, and Apple is coming out with a $400 speaker? Good luck! That’s why it’s being pushed back.

    Well, that’s APPLE. They do what they want to do. They know consumers are going to purchase regardless if it comes 3 years late, so everyone just get over it and wait.

    I totally agree with your statements. No doubt, I am an Apple fan for sure, but… I am quite disappointed in quite a few things. First, as you have stated, why the delay with the HomePod? Apple has answered this question for us already, but there still isn't any excuse. Another thing that is disappointing is the limited amount of music choices at the present moment. As a blind person who is literate in using braille, Apple really disappointed me when IOS 11 first came out. There were a lot of bugs with the braille translator. If Android would get their butts working on their poor braille solution and make it how it should be, then I might switch over to Android. Great video.

    Apple isn't Snapple…you will have to wait for the latest junk fad…!!!

    Its probably a good speaker but the problem is Siri, she is so dumb. Apple needs to fix Siri before she becomes obsolete.

    Personally, I think Apple now is only concerned with the money. I can remember before Steve Jobs died and Tim Cokke took over, Steve Jobs was involved more with perfection than cash​.

    To me the most important quote you said was “overpromess” and “underdeliver” that’s how I felt by reading their update today
