You can buy a $20 leather coaster for your HomePod


Sure, yesterday’s large timber dirty HomePod news was a bit of a black eye for Apple’s intelligent speaker, though it’s going to be a bonus for one really specific, intensely slight product category. I’m certain I’m going to get 50 identical pitches a notation this story publishes, though Pad Quill owners Brian Holmes kick everybody to a punch by alerting us to a $20 leather coaster that’s now adult for pre-order.

I’m not observant we should buy this — in fact, we substantially shouldn’t — though it’s there if we wish it. And yes, it will, indeed repair a emanate of a HomePod’s silicone bottom withdrawal round outlines in some timber finishes. It’s not a required product — we could even contend it’s a rubbish of 20 of your hard-earned dollars, not to discuss a ideally good square of leather.

But hey, it’s zero if not a covenant to American skill and a sorcery of capitalism, addressing a smallest opening in consumer direct with “state-of-the-art aspect protection…designed in Minneapolis and handmade by learned artisans.” Sure, it’s designed to never indeed been seen, though you’ll know it’s there, operative tough for we and your timber finish, and during a finish of a day, isn’t that a many critical thing?

In fact, if you’re going to spend $20 on a domestic leather HomePod coaster, maybe it’s improved that no one indeed ever sees it. The thing should start shipping subsequent week, so maybe keep a HomePod in a protected space until then.
