HomePod — $199 at Best Buy
Posted by: RAMd®d

I'm a little disenchanted with HomePod, to date.

But there are some here who are quite happy with it.

If one is wanting a second one, or feels that the State of the HomePod is worth exploring at $199, then saunter on over to [www.bestbuy.com] .

I don't know how long the sale will last, but I don't know that there will be the shortages of say — the Apple Pencil.

For this sale price, I'd almost consider another.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Same here. I already have two in the living room, but I've been thinking of one for the bedroom.

OWC has them for what, $219.? I may just wait and support the home team for an extra $20.

I got one a while back for a similar price, mostly as another speaker for our kitchen that I know will (or should) remain Mac-friendly, since that's what provides our music (Pandora or iTunes, not Apple Music).

For that, it does well - very nice sound. It does, however, listen to us and occasionally misinterprets something the wife and I say to each other as "Hey Siri" (I guess) and tries to talk to us. The wife doesn't like that.

Hey pdq!
You can ask Siri to “stop listening” and it will do just that. Touching the top will engage its ear again.
There’s also the preference to make Siri not listen, and to listen when click and hold the top.

I just realized I can play videos and run the sound through VLC to my HomePod.

But the latency makes that an untenable option.

Still, a pair does make stereo music.
