  New Apple tech developments coming

  走进HomePod——苹果公司的最新产品

  Last Monday (US time) Apple Inc introduced the HomePod , a voice-controlled speaker that can make music suggestions and adjust home temperatures,taking aim at Amazon.com Inc’s Alexa feature and Echo devices.

  上周一(美国时间)苹果公司推出了一款新产品HomePod,这是一款由语音控制的扬声器,可以推荐音乐,还可以调整室温,同时把目标瞄准了亚马逊公司的Alexa特色和Echo设备。

  The move is the first into a completely new area by Apple for more than two years as the world’s most valuable technology company looks to make up for a dip in iPhone sales and new ways to get customers to use more of its money-making apps and services.

  这是苹果公司在两年多的时间里首次在一个全新领域研发产品。这家全球最值钱的科技公司试图力挽iPhone销量下滑的狂澜,同时让消费者更多去使用可以赚钱的APP和服务。

  Apple’s Siri assistant will be integrated into the $349 speaker, and can make music recommendations that pair with the company’s Apple Music service, send text messages, check news and sports scores and control compatible home gadgets like lightbulbs and thermostats.

  苹果的Siri将融入到349美元的扬声器中,并可以利用该公司的苹果音乐服务推荐音乐,发送短信、查看新闻和赛事比分,还可以控制灯泡、恒温器等家庭设备。

  HomePod users may initially be constrained by Siri’s lack of capabilities as compared to Alexa, which also boasts the ability to order millions of Amazon products as well as food from restaurants like Domino’s.

  与Alexa相比,HomePod里Siri的功能可能有限,通过Alexa用户也能买到很多的亚马逊产品,还能订到类似Domino’s的餐馆。

  The HomePod speaker stands just under seven inches (18 centimeter) tall and is covered in fabric mesh that will come in white or gray.

  HomePod扬声器高7英寸(18厘米),被一层白色或灰色的织物网覆盖。

  A computer processor will tune sound to the room and beam specific parts of music, like a singer’s voice, toward the listener.

  电脑处理器会调整声音至充盈整个房间,并将特定部分的音乐传送给听众,比如歌手的声音。

  Apple will begin shipping the HomePod to the US, the UK and Australia in December.

  苹果公司将于12月向美国、英国和澳大利亚发货。

  The speaker, while expected by some industry watchers, marked Apple’s first new product announcement since the Apple Watch in September 2014. As a music-playing device, it will also be a challenger to Sonos, whose Wi-Fi-controlled speakers are used by many smartphone users for home entertainment.

  这是苹果2014年9月推出Apple Watch后的首个新产品。作为一款音乐播放设备,它也将成为Sonos的竞争对手。Sonos的wi-fi控制扬声器被许多智能手机用户用来室内娱乐。

  The Cupertino, California-based company said Siri, which also competes with Alphabet Inc’s Google Assistant, will now work across devices.

  位于加州的苹果公司总部表示Siri也会被用于这台设备,同时它也是Alphabet公司谷歌助手的竞争对手。

  A new Siri interface on the Apple Watch will also blend users’ calendar information with other useful details, like airline tickets they may have booked, the company said.

  苹果公司表示,苹果手表上的一个新的Siri界面也会将日历和用户其他有用的信息结合在一起,比如已经预订的机票。

  Apple shares closed down 1 percent at $153.93, not far below the all-time high set last month.

  苹果股价收跌1%,报153.93美元,与上月创下的历史高位相比,跌幅并不是很大。
