Apple HomePod permanently damages wood surfaces :takethisl:
 

 

Wirecutter reports that Apple has confirmed the problem. It’s apparently caused by an interaction between the HomePod’s silicone base and certain oils used to finish wood furniture. The severity of the marks seems to vary, judging from a tweet by MacStories’ Federico Viticci.


For those affected, Apple says “the marks can improve over several days after the speaker is removed from the wood surface.” However, if the rings don’t go away, Wirecutter says Apple suggests that you can either go refinish the furniture or “try cleaning the surface with the manufacturer’s suggested oiling method.”

This is not a good look for Apple. For the people who just brought home a fancy new smart speaker, the last thing they’ll probably want to do is be forced to re-sand their furniture on a regular basis. We have reached out to Apple for comment on the news, but have yet to hear back.

Dont worry. Apple will send out an apology, followed by selling you an iCoaster for $49.99 to fix the issue.

$30?! That's if it's a sheet of paper. If it's any kind of quality cloth work I'm sure it'll be at least $50

I have both devices so try again



Samsung fu*ked up ONE phone model while apple has fu*ked customers for the past 3 years.

Admittedly slowing down old phones and admitting battery issues. Still charging to have them replaced.

I dont cape for any company.

What excuses will you make for apple next?

Let me know when the FAA considers airpods an explosive device and doesnt let you on the plane with one. Im pretty sure Apple can live with one story instead of it being the main headline. And thats not a homepod

You do realize im not one of those guys i just like to point out Samsung released IED's and yall forgot about it with the quickness. So you can pick sides in this moronic battle that doesnt benefit yall (unless you own stock in either. Do any of yall own stock in these companies you care about so much ?)

Again not that i care but from a strictly business standpoint the "one phone model Samsung fu*ked up" as you pointed out cost Samsung 3.1 BILLION do you understand how monumental that is? While im pretty sure Apple made money out of theirs

And what "excuse" did i have for Apple in the first place?

Just so we're clear yall can make "icoaster" jokes but i cant say they dont explode? Got it

You typed up a novel with all opinionated information.

Samsung took a huge loss on one phone, but did they try to scam more money out of its customers for it like apple did? No.

Samsung provided parts for more than half of late model iphones, and now providing screens on iphone x. You think they worried about that loss?

So your question is if i think a company is worried about losing 3.1 billion dollars? I have that correct? Yes, yes i do.

So following your logic Samsung is better because this scenario didnt take place. "Your phone exploded and the problem seems to be the battery. Would you like to buy a new one for x amount?"

Let me remind for the third time i do not care about either company your using all this energy because i reminded people Samsungs phones exploded after your hilarious icoaster joke.

Newsflash Samsung makes billions Apple makes billions youre the sucker defending and how much do you make from either?
