HomePods will be on their way to homes in two weeks. However, between now and then is the Super Bowl.

If I were Amazon and wanted to have my own HomePod deflate-gate around the Super Bowl, I’d come out with a flurry of releases, maybe like they did around the Google Home events.

What might be some ways Amazon could do this?
