MacVoices
The talk of the Apple community

<p><strong>Kirk McElhearn </strong>and host <strong>Chuck Joiner </strong>dig into the <strong><a href="https://www.sonos.com/en-us/home">Sonos</a> </strong>smart speaker issue, looking at the past, present, and what we know about the future. They debate the issue of obsolescence in smart home devices and beyond, how manufacturers get paid to keep their tech current, and what you need consider when investing in gear that you plan to use for the indefinite future.</p>
