Sonos One Can Leave White Marks on Some Wood Furniture as Well

Apple HomePod 10+ things you should know before you buy

Just days after launching the HomePod, Apple already has a major issue on its hands. If they don't go away on their own, wiping them with a damp or dry cloth should do the trick. Interestingly, the Space Grey HomePod is just as likely to produce rings as the white model.

Reuters/Stephen LamThe Homepod- Apple's first venture into the field of smart speakers. Apple believes that the ring stains are caused by some sort of chemical reaction with certain wood surfaces treated with oil or wax.

The good news is that the marks appear to fade somewhat with time; when I reviewed the HomePod last week, it was sitting in a different location on my cabinet, and while there's a white ring there too, it's much less prominent. The Apple HomePod is ruining its customers' furniture due to the chemicals that are used to create its body. When you compare that to the Apple Watch and iPhone, that's a massive difference.

Invoice & Melinda Gates: Why we give our cash away
Melinda Gates also acknowledged that the foundation wields outsized influence because of her family's vast wealth. He revealed that over the years he had been asked why they were giving away their money.

Product review and recommendation site Wirecutter published a review on Wednesday saying the HomePod left a white circle on a wooden surface, the reviewer warned not to put the device on nice or expensive wooden furniture.

Apple have responded by adding to their support page a section on "Cleaning and taking care of HomePod" where they confirm and explain reasons for this.

Apple says that the mark may be caused by oils diffusing between the device's silicone base and the table surface. Stuart Miles said the speaker left a mark on his kitchen worktop within 20 minutes.

Trump Tells Lawmakers He Would Support 25-Cent Gas Tax Increase
But a White House spokeswoman said "everything is on the table" in the infrastructure plan and the gas tax has "pros and cons". Lawmakers, to maintain current spending levels, would need to approve an additional $107 billion from 2021 through 2026.

Apple notably delayed shipping the HomePod until this year, as the firm said it "needed more time" to flawless the device. Users have also complained about products like the Echo Dot resulting in the same problems.

However, it appears that quality assurance testing wasn't able to spot this issue, Slate noted.

That didn't stop Twitter users from finding some comedic value in the design flub. Apple provided no warning at launch about the potential marks, but consumers found out the hard way when they set up the speaker and started playing music.
