HomePod available now to pre order.JPG

Apple’s HomePod is now available to pre-order in the US, UK, and Australia, writes 9to5 Mac. The first orders are due to arrive on February 9. The HomePod costs $349 and comes in white or space gray versions.

Meanwhile, Apple has just issued an official “Environmental Report” for HomePod, which “details the environmental performance of HomePod as it relates to climate change, energy efficiency, material efficiency, and restricted substances.”

Among the nuggets of information contained in the report is the fact that 100% of the fiber used in the retail box for the HomePod is either recycled or sourced from responsibly managed forests. Also, the HomePod is incredibly energy efficient, with power-efficient components and software that will power down those components intelligently when the HomePod is inactive. In fact, Apple proclaims that “HomePod consumes less power than an average LED household light bulb during music playback.”

Also in a bid to lessen the environment impact of HomePod, it is brominated flame-retardant free, PVC-free, and Beryllium-free.

I really want to buy one, but not sure I can justify that price at this time. Anyone else preorder one?

Even though it is one of the most toxic minerals around?

It's only bad when you are machining it. Strong, lightweight, great for high end machines where weight and performance are critical.

Plus its name just sounds so cool
