Sonos used a popular meme to troll Apple on HomePod launch day (AAPL)

Apple's HomePod hits stores on Friday, but Sonos, which makes competing smart speakers, isn't sweating it. In fact, the smart speaker company welcomed the "Fruit Machine" to the biz by trolling it with a custom Spotify playlist, which we first spotted on 9to5Mac.  If you read the titles of the songs in order, it's a clear message to Cupertino.  Check it out:  "Hello Apple Something About Us Together Feels Right Even Though You're Crazy For This Home POD Remember Two Is Better Than One Just Playing (Dreams) It's A Party Everybody's Coming To My House Even You Come As You Are Fruit Machine No Matter What You're Told We're Going To Be Friends Over Everything"  It's a variation on a meme that blew up in 2017.
