On this week’s Drill Down podcast, Amazon Goes to the market, Uber calls the ambulance, Apple launches the HomePod, Facebook attempts to validate the news, is there a link between video games and violence?Â … and much, much more.
Earlier this week Apple announced that their smart home speaker, the Homepod, will go on sale in stores beginning on February 9th. Pre-orders begin this week.
The story of the Homepod has been a strange one given Apple’s history. Recall that Apple created both the modern consumer digital music market in 2003 with iTunes and then, eight years later they launched the voice assistant game with their 2011 introduction of Siri. Given these milestones and a history of building some of the best hardware in modern consumer technology. It’s a shame they’re so late to this voice speaker game.
On this week’s The Drill Down podcast, more trouble for Uber, a leaked NSA report on the 2016 election, great news for indie game developers, and all the best from Apple‘s World Wide Developers Conference (Apple WWDC 2017), much more.
