President Robert Mugabe's famous "blue house" or "blue roof" has been sealed off by heavily armed military personnel, Khuluma Afrika has confirmed.

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) has pushed the launch of its HomePod smart speaker to early next year from December, the company said on Friday, missing the holiday shopping season as the market for such devices becomes increasingly competitive. It comes with built-in smart assistant like you find on Google Home and Amazon Echo. The company didn't give a reason for the delay, other than the product needing "a little more time before it's ready for our customers". Now that mid November has rolled around and there isn't a HomePod in sight Apple is saying its release time table was a little off.

Apple's offering promises higher-end sound than the Google Home and Amazon Echo produces, albeit at a much larger $349 price tag.

Where Apple does fall short is providing a smart experience with Siri. If HomePod isn't shipping by March we may be waiting until late June before it shows up on store shelves. Apple meant to release the $349 HomePod in early December so it could be on holiday shopping lists and compete against Amazon's Echo and the Google Home speaker. We'll let you know when Apple decides to release the HomePod. We also send freebies and lots of other goodies exclusively to our email subscribers.
