The Apple HomePod Speaker: Everything You Need To Know

Look out Amazon, because the Apple HomePod is gunning for the smart assistant space that you’ve been dominating. The good news for Amazon is that the Echo and the Echo Dot are still much less expensive. In fact, they are half the price of the HomePod, but they also aren’t able to run your entire house. That’s right, the HomePod isn’t just for playing music. It can also help you with everyday household questions and tasks. And it can control all of your smart home accessories. Not too bad for something that is only 7 inches tall and less than 6 pounds.
