Apple HomePod mini is the smaller version of the big nice HomePod (which unfortunately is going to be discontinued). I was planning to buy the HomePod as Home Theatre speakers as it will support Dolby Atmos.
Got this Apple HomePod mini from Shopee and it was pretty quick delivery. After some vouchers, it was relatively inexpensive.

Switching it on… it glows.. it glows..
And it was found by my iPhone
And then updating with software..
My problem with the Apple HomePod mini
It is now sitting next to me on my bed nightstand. The sound of the Apple HomePod mini is great. It feels nice to have it.
But for the first time in an Apple product, I could NOT find a use case for this speaker. Even the expensive AirPod Max has a place for me in my nightly music listening experience or even down to podcast listening moment.
But not the Apple HomePod mini. You can say it is an impulse buy. I am not one for music in the bedroom as I worry it disturb my kids. Then I am not sure what else to do with it. And oh, I am NOT a Siri user.
Damn.. ha ha..
