Unfortunately, the HomePods get to where they can't hear me over themselves sometimes - even at low volumes. I have to unplug and replug them to restore proper operation. I've had this issue since release and it's existed through all software updates.
On March 29, an Apple Maps van crashed in Kilgore, Texas. The driver died from his injuries later that day.
It's creepy how this story never made it past the local news. Interestingly, the local police department was asking the public for information about the crash. Surely, the 360° cameras, lidar, GPS, and wheel encoder collected more than enough evidence. Locals say that intersection is very dangerous.
NOTE: This was not a self-driving vehicle.

Turned out the guys name was actually Ford and he wasn't in any kind of trademark violation. The company eventually bought the domain for what I assume was a hefty payday for the anonymous Mr. Ford.
I also remember sitting in front of my home-built desktop computer running Windows 95 and dialing up to access the internet using my 28.8kbps modem. I opened Netscape Navigator and typed in "http://www.nissan.com" expecting to see cars. Instead, I saw the following web page:
The legal battle over this domain name has been going on for two decades. It still doesn't belong to the car company.
I noticed this within minutes of receiving of my Xs Max last Friday and posted a comment about it on here.
"The most impressive aspect of my Xs Max so far is the quality of selfies taken by the front-facing camera. For the first time ever, I look better in selfies than in the mirror. There's obviously some "beauty filtering" going on because I know I don't look this good in real life. I'm not sure how I feel about that just yet."
