What happened to home hub

Right before build, Tom Warren revealed that there were plans around something called a “home hub” similar to an Echo show or mini surface hub and mini jamboard.

Is this another Cortana speaker issue where it won’t see the light of day until it’s too late?

    <p>Or it wasn't meant to be anything. Not everything you read on the internet is true. ?</p>

    <p>Microsoft is working out the software first, the hardware is secondary. Notice how virtually nobody uses Apple's HomeKit because it's so poorly thought out(rushed to market). Microsoft is learning from previous mistakes and not rushing features/APIs to market before they are ready. F.e., My People pushed out from RS2 to RS3 instead of putting some buggy, half baked thing that nobody would use and abandon after one try. I know some of you will bleat… 'but but Edge was half baked in 2015…'. Microsoft could not ship a brand new Windows 10 OS without the new browser, even half baked. Fortunately Edge is almost at 50% feature parity with Chrome. Another 2-3 Redstones and it will be usable.</p>

Edge is an absolute disgrace, and worse so on Windows 10 Mobile. Edge doesn't even come close in features, in comparison with Firefox loaded with extensions.</p><p>Edge has a long treacherous development path ahead of it. The Edge developers need to knuckle down to get Edge feature-rich, particularly before the Surface Laptop with Windows 10 S is made available (yikes it's already available in the US – I'm on Edge (pun intended) just worrying about the backlash from those who expect nothing but supreme quality from Microsoft. Boy are they gonna be disappointed).</p>

        <blockquote><a href="#122224"><em>In reply to Locust Infested Orchard Inc.:</em></a></blockquote><p>Edge is a superior browser to Chrome. Smaller, faster, more secure. Chrome's design is lackluster, has scaling issues, and is slower than Edge. There is nothing better about Chrome for someone who just wants to browse the web.</p>
