So I'll repeat me question/issue from the Belkin speaker thread here for the wider audience. How do you all think Apple/Google/Amazon are doing to handle "smart speakers" in terms of the end of support or end of life cycle. I would be furious if I bought a Homepod and in 5 years it cannot accept any more updates. This is why the entire segment confuses me, by all means spend money on quality speakers but why would you want to gamble on a short life span from the "smarts" portion of the device when your phone can easily perform the same functions. Most of us upgrade our phones every 2-3 years so that hardware will never age but it is not unreasonable to want to keep quality speakers for 10 years + and I doubt Apple/Google/Amazon are going to support these devices that long.

It was really bold (stupid?) of Apple to release this product. Here, you know the AI assistant that is by far the worst one in existence, the one we pack in for free in every device we make but is virtually never used for anything besides setting a timer? What if we had a device where that normally free novelty was literally the only thing it did? And what if we priced it at 4x of the prices our competitors charge for their far supperior products?

This is up there with the MacPro's Wheels in having the lowest value to price ratio, not just of Apple products, but of all products anyone has ever sold. Those little iMac plushies with faces on them that people mock have a better value to price ratio than the HomePod.

Incredible how many HomePod still around in inventory. Apple must had manufactured a huge batch of them.
I got one a couple weeks ago from Best Buy and it still had 11.2.5 software on it. So that's how long ago it had been manufactured.

The sound quality is amazing, but it is very limited. Even if Apple announces allowing third party music services at WWDC, it will not be until the Fall we get the software update.

Thank you! Your point stretches into everything IOT also. Will smart lock/deadbolts get bricked all of the sudden? Will I have to replace my thermostat every 7 years? Etc. What about my smart alarm or video surveillance system? It's incredibly frustrating.

One thing for sure, never buying anything Sonos again.
