Also very nice for folks who purchase the newest iPod being released which normally does not have a suitable case which fits it. I've had a couple of friends run into this problem and not want to carry their iPod around for fear of scratches and lack of case.

That's freaking awesome.

On so many levels...

Whenever I get an iPod, I'll definitely rather get one of those than a rubber or plastic neon case that seems to be the norm for iPods.

I can't believe it! Something I submited actually made it! I'm so proud.

6 socks for $30 sounds pretty good. It sounds even better if you divide the price and socks between you and a few people.

Am I the only one who thinks this is absolutely insane?

Why not get your grandmother to knit you one :p


And where is this for sale? I went to the Apple store and didn't find them...

After talking with some friends we almost decided that the "iPod s_cks" are the product of a kind of bet between some apple executives to show how zealot we are with a single apple-branded product... :eek: :D

First step to apple merchandise store...

"iPod socks, buy now or wait?"

"Wait, they will offer thongs soon" :p

I'm glad some of us see the humor in this. :D

As silly as it is, I kindof think I actually want one (or 86 as they come in 6 packs), but this always happenes when apple releases new products. (iPod photo the exception) But when the 4g ipod came out i wanted it so badly. Whereas now I rather prefer my 3g.


Now I can say I actually want socks for christmas.

Yeah, that was in the presentation (http://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/specialevent04/).

Items like that are unbelievably cheap to have made these days, so I think it was worth it as a gag for Apple's big music event, and they can make it up in holiday gift purchases, even if those are gags too.
