The extended Siri discussion wraps up with a comparison to a very old (and fondly remembered) program. The next set of expectations and desires included why Apple needs to focus on a HomePod ecosystem or whether the existing iPhone/app is adequate, and how it has one key feature that may be an advantage or a disadvantage. Have an Amazon Echo? It may be able to do more than you think, but you would never know it. Next, the Windows-on-macOS debate takes center stage. David Ginsburg, Frank Petrie, Jeff Gamet, Patrice Brend’amour, and Jim Rea weigh in. (Part 3)
