In the wake of the recent “controversy” circling around HomePod’s misdemeanor on oiled furnitures, it seems like things have been blown out of proportion.
As soon as the news started spreading about HomePod leaving white circle stains on wooden furnitures, other speaker companies clamored to claim that their speakers leave far better stains.
The outrage that followed could have potential damage to stock prices for Apple and Sonos especially since speakers from both seem to leave far more influential marks.
What Apple Engineers Had to Say
“We spent 6 years on the HomePod. During all the testing and experimenting, we were very specific about the amount of cocaine we induce in HomePod’s bottom, and we were concerned about its quality too,” said Elon Musk, Apple’s assistant Engineer to Tim Apple.
“The seven ounces of Benzoylmethylecgonine ensures that the rings HomePod leaves have stains that last and are higher in contrast.”
“I’m no chemist, but I know the molecular formula for cocaine is C17H21NO4,” he continued.
Elon Musk is well-known for Antenna-gate on iPhone 4, the bendgate on iPhone 6, removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, and now, for the notoriously famous Apple HomePod stain rings that people think aren’t better than Sonos speakers’.
Tim Apple, in response to Elon’s statement, is reported to have asked how Elon is working at Apple in the first place, but it seems that the CEO is satisfied with the quality of HomePod rings so he’s willing to let that slip.
“I think people do not yet understand how innovative the rings are. It’s only a matter of time before people realize how Apple is shaping the future.”
“Sonos Did It First”
Patrick Spence, CEO at Sonos, feels ashamed that people are blind to what other companies bring to the market.
“Sonos speakers have been leaving stains on your furniture for a long time, but only when Apple does something do you people see innovation. This is unfair to the point where I can’t even.”
Well, it IS true that Sonos speakers brought speaker stains to the market before HomePod.
But that doesn’t change the fact that people do not notice something unless you do it well.
And Apple excels at being fashionably late and sweeping the market.
