A year from WWDC17 deliver Stereo for HomePod from when it was announced.
Now a year to deliver AirPower after they were announced. I hope they prioritize new Computers over AirPower because other than the MacPro (which won't show up till 2019) they haven't announced any new Computers. Cook says the Mini is an important part of Apple, why doesn't someone ask if there will be another Mac Mini.

This is nothing. I remember this case from the 90s where a cop killed here former partner and 2 others.

It's not a master of sales and isn't leading some glorious Google revolution, but the Pixel 2 is an excellent phone. That being said, QC on some of the initial LG made Pixel 2 XL devices seemed to be lacking with some display issues early on. Of course that seems to have been remedied, as well, Google offering a 2 year warranty, and rightfully so.
Compared to its rival, the iPhone 8, it has a better display, speakers, camera, battery and AI. Android runs buttery smooth with no hitches what so ever. It also doesn't heavily throttle when performing graphically intensive tasks:
Ironic, as Apple used to lead in sustained performance. Now they're well behind.When we’re looking at competitor devices we see only the the iPhone X able to compete with the last generation Snapdragon 835 devices – however with a catch. The A11 is severely thermally constrained and is only able to achieve these scores when the devices are cold. Indeed as seen from the smaller score of the iPhone 8, the SoC isn’t able to sustain maximum performance for even one benchmark run before having to throttle.
And some comparison photos:
"When we’re looking at competitor devices we see only the the iPhone X able to compete with the last generation Snapdragon 835 devices – however with a catch. The A11 is severely thermally constrained and is only able to achieve these scores when the devices are cold. Indeed as seen from the smaller score of the iPhone 8, the SoC isn’t able to sustain maximum performance for even one benchmark run before having to throttle. Unfortunately this also applies to current and last generation Exynos and Kirin SoCs as both shed great amount of performance after only a few minutes. I’ve addressed this issue and made a great rant about it in our review of the Kirin 970. For this reason going forward AnandTech is going to distinguish between Peak and Sustained scores across all 3D benchmarks. This however needs to be tested on commercial devices as the QRD platform isn’t a thermally representative phone for the SoC, so until that happens, we’ll have to just estimate based on power consumption where the Snapdragon 845 ends up."
So, the results of the 845 in a real phone may, unfortunately, throttle.
Apple launches A12 in new iPhone(s) in September; might be a few Android OS devices with the 845 by then, but doubt that "lead" will hold up.

They’re saying the speaker sounds great, but it’s hard to recommend unless you plan on using AirPlay from another Apple device or Apple Music directly on it.
Now, you can disagree with my opinion, but you can’t ignore the fact that Apple isn’t offering this product in a complete vacuum.
hopefully in a couple years Apple makes a HomePodMax that would be bigger with external connections.
