I am an Apple Music subscriber and talking to my friends who use Spotify and not Apple Music, they say they would pay for Apple Music if when you "thumbs up"/ "like" a song, it adds that song to a "thumbs up playlist". Something so simple like that influences people...they spend so much time talking about curated playlists and algorithms and exclusives....the casual listener doesn't really care about that. They hear a song they like and want it in a playlist. Obviously you can just create a playlist and hit add to playlist, but some people are lazy, if that makes sense.

Missing December allowed products by Amazon and Google to gain a critical foothold in the smartspeaker market. Apple is prioritizing audio quality over voice functions though, which could help justify the HomePod's $349 pricetag.
I seem to remember when HomePod was first announced there was talk of Siri having a limited functionality on it, like it would only support some music and HomeKit commands. But on apple.com it says this on the HomePod page:
”Because it has Siri, HomePod can hear and answer questions in the most popular categories. Timers. Clocks. Measurements. Translations. News. Sports. Weather. Traffic. And general knowledge. It’s great at the things you want to know, and do, in your home.”
That doesn’t seem as limited as we were led to believe. Or am I missing something?
(I suppose the limitations could be in the form of no personal stuff, like setting reminders and no functions it won’t support like making phone calls)
on a side note, they got my payment info and email address with their scam of offering the silicone apple iphone xs case for $4.99 as a special deal only to send me an email saying the case was on backorder and would ship in 2 months, then 2 days later another email saying the order was canceled. This deal was promoted on 9to5toys and had multiple complaints in the comments section after the fact.
i love the Apple TV, but wish some things were enhanced: obviously the remote being revamped is a start...simply moving it on my bed triggers an action, i can't tell which is the top and bottom in the dark, it's too thin (bought a case for it). Maybe getting into more gaming could help them also. Not that fixing a remote would help sales, but gaming would.
