Welcome to another episode of Apple Products Cost Too Much! The only technology game show that’s been running continuously since Apple was founded in 1976.
Writing for the lovely people and, yes, several hideous were-beasts over at Business Insider, Peter Newman explains “Why Apple’s new HomePod won’t be an Echo killer.” (Tip o’ the antlers to @JonyIveParody.)
Is it because it starts at like $300 more than the Echo does? Congratulations, you have rediscovered the price elasticity of demand. Not that it was lost or anything.
