In her critically acclaimed and award-winning book, “The God of Small Things,” Arundhati Roy speaks of how human beings are mortals of habits, and it was amazing the type of stuffs one might get used to. Of course, Roy was talking in a totally different circumstance but it holds a huge amount of significance amongst the habits of users in the digital space. If there is one company that has been skilled in the art of playing on these “mortals of habit” stuff, then it has to be the Cupertino-based behemoth Apple.
Ask any user of the company and they will state that they are so used to the ecosystem of the brand that they just cannot get out of it. The ecosystem of the company, of course, gets additionally enabled if one employs an iPhone, a MacBook, and Apple Watch. This bionetwork has a new inclusion now—the HomePod.
While there is no word on when and if the HomePod will be rolled out in India or not, the global tech experts and media have given their judgments on the device.
