The problem of white spots is not unique to HomePod|Technotechi
This week, a few days after the arrival of HomePod in the sale, there was revealed a feature that Apple cheaters have repeatedly mocked. It turned out that if you put this clever column on a wooden surface, after some time, an unpleasant white circle appears on the latter.
In Cupertino immediately reacted and said that this phenomenon is not anything extraordinary: they say, the silicone base for suppressing vibrations should leave characteristic traces, and there is nothing to be done about it. Recently, our American colleague confirmed the correctness of Apple’s arguments.
The author of Tom’s Guide, Mike Prospero, drew attention to the fact that after several days of use on the wooden table, white traces were left not only after HomePod but also after the Sonos One column. The last product they did not have a round shape, like the column from Apple, but the fact of the appearance of traces suggests that in Cupertino were right.
Curiously, such materials for the bottom base are used not only in HomePod and Sonos One but also in Amazon Echo and Google Home. Apparently, the last two columns do not leave a trace behind themselves due to their weight, which is noticeably smaller than that of the analogs from Apple and Sonos. Have not yet decided on whether to buy HomePod, to exchange views on the column can be in our official chat in Telegram.
