“The most Apple can hope for is that Home Pod serves as a compelling-enough front end for Spotify and Prime to capture the hardware money from those folks, at which point Apple can try converting them back to Apple software.”

The problem is Apple isn’t pricing the HomePod for that strategy. Compared to Google and Amazon, Apple’s device is grossly overpriced. It would have to be superior by leaps and bounds. And all indications are that it isn’t. They are trying their iPhone pricing strategy where they were market leaders. In the home device they are far behind and need more aggressive pricing to catch up.

I own Mac computers and iPhones, but I much prefer the Amazon ecosystem. I don’t know what Apple can do to get me back in the camp. It won’t be easy and they will have to start delivering better value for the money. I’m already thinking of ditching iCloud because it’s going to start costing me $10 a month in a pricing schedule that is outdated.
