Apple acknowledges HomePod leaves white ring on wooden surfaces

From CNET: Apple would like you to know that you should think twice about putting it on an oiled wooden surface.

You see, Wirecutter observed that the HomePod caused white rings to appear on both an oiled butcher-block countertop and on a wooden side table.

No, Apple didn't suggest to Wirecutter that anyone had been holding it wrong or placing it wrong.

Instead, it reportedly confessed that this can happen and that "the marks can improve over several days after the speaker is removed from the wood surface."

Which seems a little unfortunate. You expect your $350 speaker with Siri attached to fill your room with sound, not fill your furniture with scars, even if the scars may be temporary.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment as to which surfaces were safe and which weren't.
