HomePod vs. Echo & Google Home: The Winner Is | Fortt Knox
How can CNBC be considered a news company, and so wrong about the systems they are comparing. They did not cover the items that the other devices excelled at. It was clearly a biased review.

Apple makes great durable hardware but the software sux

Can someone please explain to these people at CNBC that there is no need for such a long pause when invoking Siri then awaiting a response before asking the question, instead simply say “hey Siri” and continue on with your inquiry, she’s already listening at that point and will still reply with your response. Many times I’ve asked Siri a question while music was playing and it was still answered correctly, also without having to ask, wait while Siri muted the music or anything, Siri just simply answered but muted the music while responding.

Is there anyone here that thinks Google is not going to control the home (Home Automation) in the future? Humm, ask yourself what smart home speaker would you want to invest in today for your son or daughter.

Bill Van Still too early. The battle has begun.

What's the point of comparing them if you're clearly pushing for one product to be the best. Most people know that Siri is not even close to Alexa or the Google Assistant.
