If you haven't heard yet, HomePod can ruin some wood furniture.

When Pocket-lint reviewed Apple's smart speaker, we discovered its silicone base left a white, discoloured ring on our solid oak kitchen worktop that was treated with Danish oil. Apple told us this isn't unusual for a speaker with a silicon base and essentially suggested we either wait for the stain to go away on its own or attempt to gently clean the affected surface with with a soft damp or dry cloth.

Neither of those solutions worked for us. But we're not the only ones who experienced this odd issue. A quick check on Twitter has surfaced several tweets from other HomePod users who are annoyed by the situation. There's also people who think the issue is being too hyped up, and then there are people who are laughing at our expense. The internet is bursting with tweets and jokes about #ringgate.

Here are some of the best internet reactions we've seen so far. Let us know in the comments if you've seen other great jabs.
