Guess What? Sonos One Speakers Also Damage Wood

Guess What? Sonos One Speakers Also Damage Wood

Only a week after its launch, HomePod users have reported that the speaker has been leaving white circular marks on their wooden surfaces.

APPLE'S AMAZON-RIVALLING HomePod speaker costs just $216 (3154) to make, a recent teardown of the device has revealed. Sonos One, HomePod, and Echo owners will have to decide whether to move their devices or embrace the rings.

Interestingly, however, this margin is significantly lower than Apple's competitors, such as the Google Home and Amazon Echo, which have margins of 66 percent and 56 percent, respectively.

Germany welcomes release of journalist in Turkey
As several newspapers in Germany noted, however, five German citizens are now still imprisoned on political grounds in Turkey . Erdogan had repeatedly described Yucel as a "terror agent" causing consternation in Germany.

When I got home, I saw a large white ring, a telltale indication that the HomePod's silicone base had messed up the finish. The photo from Tom's Guide shows markings from the Sonos One's feet that outline the speaker's box shape, but aren't as pronounced as the ring the HomePod leaves. However, unlike the HomePod which left behind prominent white circles, the Sonos One left behind four small marks.

According to a Sonos spokesperson, this is the first time that such an incident has been raised with one of its devices, and that the company is now investigating the situation.

Online commenters also noticed similarities between the white rings and Apple's recently Foster+Partners-designed campus in Cupertino, California.

Kia aims for 500000 pa sales in Europe with new Ceed
A first for any Kia sold in Europe, the Ceed is available with Lane Following Assist, a "Level Two" autonomous driving technology. Following its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, production starts in May, with European sales due to begin by the end of Q2 2018.

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.

In a support document, Apple says these marks are "not unusual"; however, we've never encountered them before. A cloth placed underneath the HomePod, however, is not a good solution as the soft material will absorb the sound.

How can you tell your neighbor owns an Apple HomePod? While Pad & Quill has produced a leather Homepad coaster, Meres is selling an aluminium mount for the speaker.
