For smart speakers, it went Google Home --> Home Mini --> Home Max --> Nest Mini, pretty simple compared to the yearly Echo lineup. Here's the chart from wiki:

Google started naming their smart products "Nest" after they bought Nest, who used to make thermostats and smoke detectors.

How did they notify you of cancellation? an hour back they charged my credit card, not sure if that is a charge or refund - but no email yet from them

That’s some great customer service! All I got was a cancellation email from them...

It is later now, and I did not realize these are not wireless. Does anybody know where I can purchase a portable base for this? I've only seen it online for $40+.
They are wireless - it's just not battery powered.

Makes sense. She will ignore you if you push her button.

I found a few at my local Walmart today! Smiling Face With Heart-shaped EyesSmiling Face With Heart-shaped EyesSmiling Face With Heart-shaped Eyes Picked up another one. Smiling Face With Sunglasses There was stock even though the stock check site said 0.

If you're out and about at Walmart today, have a gander and maybe you'll get lucky too. 👍🏼Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

I guess I might not get the ones I threw on to my $1700 Lowes order on Victoria Day.

I haven't heard anything from Lowes at all - I even emailed customer service to follow up on my orders, but the 48 hours they promise a response in have come and gone and I haven't heard anything. I placed an order on May 9th I haven't heard about either. This is a gong show right now with these online orders at Lowes.

The v1 has a micro USB port for power
The v2 has a tiny DC barrel jack
I found a simpler way, I just asked the speaker what version are you and it said 2.

Or flip it over and look for the hole in the bottom for wall mounting (V2 Mini indicator).

There are a lot of minor improvements that they could make to the regular Home product to bring it from 2016 to 2020+.
But, once again, it won't be $39.
