What's in this episode?

In Episode 27 of Apple Slice Podcast, we enter the abode of 'ambient technology' with Nic's review of Google Home - does it live up to expectations?

With WWDC 2017 around the corner, the hype train is hectic with new rumours of the 10.5" iPad Pro and Siri Speaker. Amazon and Apple also bust the feud with some promising Prime Video support expected.

What is 'dark data'? It sounds ominous and unofficial but trust us, it's pretty dang awesome and Apple invested big in it... oh and rest assured, better sleep tracking is coming and it's about to get dreamier.

Simon is also on the verge of self-combustion due to exceptional excitement. This being mostly attributed to the fact The Legend Of Zelda is coming to iPhone!
