At least for me, the MSI clearly wins because of the Anti-Ghost Key. As someone who is constantly being haunted, being able to dismiss those specters with the click of a key is a legitimate life saver.
Just a reminder that Best Buy has HomePods on sale for $199 ($179 open box) a few times a year. Most likely they'll be on sale again this year around Thanksgiving. If you can wait a little bit, you can save a good chunk of change.
I was thinking about getting the 13 inch but by the time I bumped it to 16 GB and 512 GB I was at 1699. That makes the difference (in my case) only 300 for the base model which has 16/512. 300 for a bigger, better screen, a faster chip and more ports. Looks like I'm getting the 14".
Comcast's refusal to support single sign on has been annoying. They made me fight tooth and nail to get an "accidental" charge removed from my bill. They took FOREVER to switch to IMAP. They... well, they just everything. There's a reason I have this username.
I'd go as far as to say that there never needs to be another named upgrade. Just keep adding .1 updates when they're ready. At WWDC they can announce upcoming things they're working on and release them later. Kind of like they're doing now but without the pretense of a named upgrade.
In the last few days I've heard its referenced twice. I forget the first time but the second one was on Late Night with Seth Myers. They even had a poll about the reference asking if it was too soon to reference "Severance". I think word is slowly getting around about the show.
