Can Sonos take on Apple, Google, Amazon? Do we need a yellow iPhone? Vertical Hold Ep 419
Can Sonos’ new smart speakers take on Apple’s mighty HomePods? Is a product “new” if it’s just in a new colour? Special guest Pickr’s Leigh Stark!
Sonos has unveiled its latest smart speakers, the Era 100 and Era 300 speakers — but does the company that once led the way in integrated sound systems still have a story to tell in an era of HomePods, Echo Shows and Google Speakers? We chat to Pickr’s Leigh Stark to try to figure out where Sonos truly sits.
Meanwhile, Apple has a new iPhone!
Well… sort of. But not really. It’s the iPhone 14, or iPhone 14 Plus (but not the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max)… in Yellow.
Do these kind of mid-cycle product “refreshes” really matter? And who wants a yellow phone anyway?
