  • Can Apple's HomePod take on a surround sound theater system?

    For home theatre you don't really need 5.1 but you definitely need a good quality subwoofer by good quality I mean one that isn't flabby. So unless apple is going to add a dedicated HomePod subwoofer, it will never be anything special for watching movies at home. Mind you if Apple made an 8" HomePod subwoofer (I can't see them making a 10") to work with two Homepods then they could do their magic and send the low sounds now produced by the 4" to the 8" sub thus freeing up headroom which would probably be a very awesome 3.1 set up.
    That would only be a 2.1 set up. Not 3.1. Left, Right, Sub is 2.1. You’d need a center channel speaker for a 3.1.

    Your point is still valid though. I have a 12” SVS sub and you could probably fit about 25 HomePods in my sub. The HP could never get down to the levels of what I have. But the great thing about my HP, which is in my room, is playing music on the HP and my HT system at the same time with AirPlay2. Music almost everywhere I go now. 
  • Apple reports best March quarter ever with $61.1B in revenue, 52.2M iPhone sales

    Great freaking quarter. Although, Apples inventory soared a whopping 164% Y/Y.

    If ever there were proof needed that 'Free apps' with 'in-app purchases' should be avoided this is it.  The term 'trap' comes to mind.
    Obviously you’ve never played or you would know that ALL IAP is purely cosmetic and not pay to win. So, yes, you play for free and be on the same level as someone who has spent $100’s on skins and emotes. 

    This is is actually how games should be. 
  • CarPlay becoming pivotal purchase priority for new car buyers

    Only thing I don’t like about CarPlay is not having Google Maps. For me, it’s still far more accurate with the hundreds of miles I drive per week. 
  • How to snag an invitation to play Fortnite on iOS and an early hands-on

    Never heard of it. Is it supposed to be the new "Grand Theft Auto"?
    You’ve seriously never heard of Fortnite? Wow! There’s a guy that goes by Ninja and he makes over $500k a month streaming on twitch playing this game. He just played with Drake last night for the highest ever viewers in the history of gaming. It’s a big deal.
