H3N2 mutation in last year's flu vaccine responsible for lowered efficacy
Conventional vaccines are reportedly less than 60% effective-and that's only when they're matched with the now circulating strain. The Public Health Agency of Canada estimated that the flu causes about 3,500 deaths each year in Canada alone.
The delay means Apple will miss the key holiday shopping season in the fast-growing segment of connected speakers. But the Cupertino, CA-based Apple says the device needs a little more tinkering. Apple's HomePod is aware of how big the room is where it is being placed, and adjusts the sound accordingly for the best experience. Now that mid November has rolled around and there isn't a HomePod in sight Apple is saying its release time table was a little off. At that time, Apple said the smart speaker would go on sale by the end of 2017 for $349. It stands 7 inches tall and features six microphones, which will listen for your command to Siri. If HomePod isn't shipping by March we may be waiting until late June before it shows up on store shelves. Missing the holidays could be a major setback for the smart speaker, which will compete with Amazon's Echo series, Google's Home series, and other several other smart speakers on the market.
