Randomly logged into a work rewards program today 'people plus', realised I had 300 odd points sitting there doing nothing, and surprise surprise they stock the google home. Should have one in 5days More I think about it though the more I realise having just one of these things is useless. Unless it can answer me from where ever I happen to be it's going to be far too limited. I think that's where amazon really have the edge with their 'dot'. Small little thing you can buy half a dozen of cheaply and have 'everywhere'. chargin - I would expect asking it 'what's the news' or similar should give you the same sort of results as you get out of google assistant, which for me is a selection of Australian 'top stories'. Mostly political BS and a handful of tabloid crap for good measure.
