    TV is dying right? So the only thing Apple has to do is wait until the cable networks get desperate and then rescue them through the TV app.

    I have one solution to this problem, never ever move the homepod and if you want to move it somewhere else buy another homepod is as simple as that.

    I've got a better solution, either rip out (heatgun needed) the dumb silicone base or superglue it to a (same size) coaster

    Or yknow apple could have simply made the silicone base out of aluminium and put some soft materials as feet under it

    The HomePod bottom is leaking oil already because those parts aren’t New at all. They’ve been sitting in the warehouse already for 6 years waiting for the HomePod to be released. Lol! 😁

    Bashing the HomePod to the extent you have run out of ideas to keep bashing it.

    Why would someone put an Amazon spy device in their home just because it’s being called a smart speaker?

    Tong, this is why you aren’t worth as much as Apple. They don’t stay rich by writing large checks if they don’t have to. Look into how Disney bought all the land in Florida to make Disneyworld. They made up several fake companies and bought all the land from different owners who were happy to sell at the agreed price. If they knew Disney wanted the land (swamp land and orange groves), the price would have been jacked up astronomically.

    This is why Apple didn’t want the Chinese owner of the name Animoji to know who they were. Makes sense.

    This is a defective product that the maker acknowledged and if the owner decided to keep then they can place a coaster (Expensive Commercial Coaster or Cheap DIY coaster) under the HomePod in the location they have chosen.

    A better cheaper option is a mouse pad to 100% prevent the speaker rings on a wooden surface. Away from that I am not buying one. Apple needs to open up a bit. But even so, I still wouldn’t buy any smart speaker. I feel they are all overrated.
