The crowd cheered in California this morning, when Apple announced HomePod, a new smart speaker armed with Siri, the company's virtual assistant. Minutes later, an image of the product appeared on Apple's website and, well, holy crap, it looks just like HAL 9000! Is Apple screwing with us?

Can you believe Apple's iOS is 11 iterations old already? It seems like just yesterday we were excited about the prospect of an app store, or the ability to select and copy text.

It's game-time! Apple just announced its long-awaited take on a smart speaker, completing the smart speaker triumvirate along with Google and Amazon. The gadget itself isn't particularly remarkable, but it is an Apple gadget. That's a big deal for a lot of people.
