The need to feel part of a club.

Google Home has landed in Oz.

Not really ready yet but shouldn't be too long. Amazon in the mix. No doubt Apple will jump on as they have nothing else.

So it looks like we will be buying future appliances based on flavour of choice and as usually happens, people will dive in, then that player pulls out of the race, and the consumer is left stagnate.

Expectation is the Google Home Mini will launch with the Pixel 2 phones on 5th Oct at something akin to the Amazon Dot prices ~ $50 on discount. Amazon will probably also launch their Echo, Dot, Dash, Look and Show here in plenty of time for Xmas.

Plenty of others bolting one or other into their devices, and I'm sure the rest will make their devices work properly online (finally). Apple are quite a long way behind, with a $465 device that won't launch till Dec, and won't actually do much smart stuff. MS have basically given up, throwing in with Alexa.

I've had an Amazon Echo since 2015 and it is now one of our goto devices

A superb piece of tech
