  • Sonos One

Granted, that list is growing nicely, but it's still nowhere as long as the number of accessories that play nicely with Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant.

Sonos are offering 2 Sonos One speakers for $398 / £349 so that you can instantly make the most of their internet connected speakers.

Having owned an Amazon Echo for more than two years, I can easily recommend a smart speaker for anyone and everyone; it will really change the way you live. (It than a Sonos.) But I do listen to music - a lot of music - and none of it's streaming through Apple Music.

The first intelligent column from Apple will be on sale on 9 February.

The Apple HomePod is Apple's latest home device release. Yet, as Apple devotees are well aware, there's no reason to doubt the tech giant.

Once in a blue moon
That means the moon will pass through the Earth's shadow and take on a reddish glow ― which gives it the nickname " blood moon ". Speaking of admiring it, not everyone will be able to see the entire eclipse in person, as viewing will be best in the West.

Apple's HomePod is officially available for preorder.

It should be noted that the HomePod is not without faults. There's already Amazon and Google's Home speakers to contend with. Currently, the Apple Store app makes no mention of the speaker, but we do expect it to appear once the preorder floodgates open. They start at $49.

However, don't let the price alone deter you if you're truly interested in a HomePod.

- Apple Music: With a catalogue of 45 million songs, HomePod learns your taste in music from across your devices to give you an eclectic mix whenever you want it. Thanks to Siri, its knowledge of songs, artists and albums is unparalleled so it can also tackle the questions you might want to ask.

Comedian and vlogger Lamarr Wilson tweeted Siri's response to him asking when the HomePod would be available to buy.

Central Intelligence Agency director says North Korean missiles are for 'coercion' and not defense
And he said Pyongyang's next likely move would be development of an arsenal of weapons and setting up a system to launch multiple missiles.

So now the battle begins as the market decides what it wants more in a smart speaker device.

I'm not the only person scratching their head over Apple's HomePod strategy. The three big home speakers from these three mega-corporations will soon be installed in homes across the globe.

A brace of HomePods doesn't sound quite as expansive as a good pair of floorstanding loudspeakers, but then they're only seven inches tall. Siri can work with third-party services, but only in limited ways so far, such as sending messages over WhatsApp or ordering an Uber, and only if your phone is at home too.

The integration of Siri is most welcome on the HomePod, and it can do everything Siri can do for you on your iPhone. If the speaker works remarkably better than Echo or Home it may be worth the extra $200 or more over Echo and Home. While some reviews have praised the device's sound, there are some things customers should know before buying the speaker. E Source observed that the original Google Home speaker used around 2W while idle and 3W while playing at high volume, while the initial Amazon Echo used 2.8W at idle and 7W at high volume.

Fb to let customers rank what information sources are reliable
These changes, according to Zuckerburg, will allow people to have more "meaningful" conversations with each other . The firm said the social network community would determine which outlets are reliable via the use of user surveys.
