Apple HomePod Review: Almost love

That’s Siri inside the top of Apple’s new HomePod

I had two listening parties with Apple HomePod, one that was all about music and another that was 75% music and 25% Siri. They were both good and I came away convinced that the HomePod is a stellar audio device.

You can, however, only learn so much about a product in a sterile, on-message environment. I wanted to touch the HomePod, listen to it in my own home and, most importantly, talk to it myself.
