I'm not at all sure if "should be" is either new or informative.
I'm pretty certain that "Maybe they will .." means absolutely nothing.
I accept that you have an axe to grind over the performance of equipment. I do not believe that should stretch to just throwing unicorn promises about stuff that might, should be or could be.
OK your right I will try and delete as it's not right adding other makers devices to this site, your right I have an axe to grind my show as gone down in usefulness it used to play radio all day now all I get is pop, pop and more pops really annoying
Last night I tried a friends google device and I can tell you all now compared to Alexa the google assistant is RUBBISH, long live Alexa when I got back I picked up my Show and told it how great it is :-)
On another note my local radio as been playing since 0600 so over 4 and a half hours and not one POP as yet
That was yesterday
Today local station on at 0600 and 1010 "pop" and 3 more Pops, had 5 pops in 15 minutes so the popping problem seems to still be there
