What's that you're hiding HomePod mini?

Apparently the mini has temperature and humidity sensors that could be enabled with updates.

If this is true and Apple enables them, I can see buying several. First, they would replace the Ecobee sensors that I have, some of which drop as they are the first generation which don't have the range of the newer sensors. Plus, I could use them to run some temperature automations. Lastly, the intercom feature would be nice.

I honestly think we can expect the HomePod product line to go away. Overpriced compared to equivalent functionality products from other vendors. My Apple loyalty does not extend to my over-extended budget.

Eventually, maybe.

But I think the HomePod mini is doing much better most anybody thinks.

I wish Apple hadn't dropped the ball with the HomePod, because it had a lot of promise.

But Apple decided long ago to set it adrift on an ice floe in the Arctic.

I still like my HPs but don't expect any more updating.

If Siri on the HP was as good as Siri on the 'Phone, that would be a whole different matter.

It would still be far short of what Apple could do, but it would make a huge difference to me, and really, I'm all that counts.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

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

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.

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

$99 is not overpriced.

Also, I think Apple will continue the product line for a few reasons, including its importance to HomeKit.
