I’d love to swap my Echo devices for HomePods, especially the new full-size ones, for privacy and HomeKit ecosystem reasons, but they’re not quite there for me. I can live with Siri being inferior to Alexa or Google Assistant for searches, but I need these:
BBC radio apps (or native support) so I can say “Play Radio 4” or “Play 6 Music”. This is probably 80% of my use of the Echo in the kitchen.
Full Spotify Connect so I can resume or control playback from my laptop or phone. AirPlaying audio...
I’m treating my job search like a full-time job and finding I’m just as busy with calls and messages. I have a few exciting roles at early stages and feeling positive. I’m also enjoying swapping leads with other ex-colleagues - something positive out of all the #layoffs.
Well it’s been a disappointing start to the year… yesterday I was let go from my job. Although it was one of several redundancies it’s still a bit of a gut punch and the first time I’ve been laid off. Hey ho. Time to move on and get stuck into a job search.
