I don’t have Apple Music, and I’m trying to figure out a use case for me.

Siri is just not good enough, IMO.

I wish I had an excuse to get the new one but my original HomePod still works great.

The OG used to go on sale for $199. Bought 2 of them then.

I'm swapping out our main unit in the kitchen to speed up Siri a bit. Starting to annoy my wife - the Minis are much faster these days. (In our house at least) The OG will go down to the basement where I'll pair it to the ATV.

Ever notice that with electronic devices they seem to know when we have a little money ahead and then decide to die or wear out or something. AI seems to be nothing new around here. Last night we had a brief storm related power outage. Things went back on line, So this morning, the Homepod, the original model, is dead. I went through all the rituals to revive it. The wife said, "Get a new one." Now she interupts my music to have Siri add a column of numbers, and now she will need to use her iphone, ipad, mac, poor kid. So I had to order one. She says "don't be cheap, for 9 dollars they will deliver it right out." So much for me going out to the apple store and getting it and stopping by Auntie EMS for a pretzel. Yeah, if I had the time, I would have ordered it on line today, but I am confident the AI in the system made sure that my Apple Pay would not sit with nothing in it. Now excuse me, I am going to drink the cold coffee and scream for a bit.

I have the OG, but this is a GREAT price for anyone in the market for a HomePod. This one blows away the mini in sound quality.
