Apple has issued a statement confirming that the HomePod can leave white rings on wood surfaces that have an oil or was finish according to a report from macrumors. Apple told Wirecutter that "the marks can improve over several days after the speaker is removed from the wood surface." If not, Apple recommends "cleaning the surface with the manufacturer's suggested oiling method." Pocket-lint's review said the HomePod left a white ring on their table after only 2 minutes.

So $349 for a spying device that also ruins your furniture. Sounds like an awesome purchase. I am now going to invent and sell a iCoaster for $49.99. Thank you to Susquehannock for the story, and my new found business venture.

It's unclear at this point whether the issue is limited to treated wood, or if the problem could cause any sort of long-term damage to the HomePod's rubber base. For now, we would obviously recommend not placing your HomePod on a surface with an oil or wax finish if possible.
Apple, overpriced junk for hipsters. Thieves of Linux, started by one of the worst psychopaths ever, Steve Jobs. Why support them?

And has been around a lot longer than Linux has... (Mac OS not just version 10) But of course that's beside the point...


They could have put a rubber o ring on the bottom of this thing, and it probably would have solved the issue. It is a huge issue if your brand new device can't even sit on a table without leaving marks. Sure you can just throw something under your device, but this is such a basic thing that should not occur on something that is being held as a premium product.

Beside the point and correct in name only- only OS X is Unix, and has been around far briefer than Linux.

[of course you know that, but hey, you omitted it ;) ]
