I mean, I get that Alexa and Google Assistant can do more.....I should hope so too, they've had a 3 year head start. But Siri is hardly dumb - with HomePod Siri I can: Control every aspect of my Apple Music / iTunes Match or iTunes purchases with ease. Control all my HomeKit stuff reliably. Answers general knowledge questions Language translation Unit conversation and maths questions Weather News Streams live radio (granted not every radio station is there yet). When connected to Apple TV, I get voice controlled Play/Pause/Remind/Forward Plays Podcasts. Set timers and alarms (granted, 1 timer limitation). More here and here. It works reliably 99% of the time, can hear me through loud music and when quiet from very far away. I know Alexas and Googles can order Pizzas, buy stuff and hail an Uber but I question the popularity of such use cases. I want a menu for food I order, I want to see the stuff I buy and I only use Uber when I'm away from the home. HomePod Siri v1 is very good IMO. What am I missing on what the media see as dumb?
