Re: Yet another blunder by the Chief Social Activist
And it never occurred to anyone at Apple that they could have pushed out an update to turn all existing AirPort hardware into a HomeKit home hub. Instead they'd rather make you buy an Apple TV or Home Hub and HomeKit is going nowhere.
If you want to make people use a new ecosystem, you make it cheap and easy to get into. That means you don't have to buy yet another box. Many people already have an AirPort/Time Capsule and those that don't might be tempted to get one if it also does HomeKit so they can dip their toes into that too.
They. Have. No. Vision. Whatsoever.
They lost that when they lost SJ.
