I want flesh tone. Put that on with a clear silicone armband and it will look like I had an LCD screen and a click wheel surgically implanted into my arm.

People around here are no longer freaked out by my colored contact lenses (opaque white), so I need something new to creep them out with other than my personality.

Real full-bodied colors too. Not that pastel crap.

Something with a pattern. This will hide the scratches (except on the display, of course.)

The old "flower power" print, while dumb looking on an iMac, would probably work on an iPod.

* Bold primary red

* Bold primary blue

* Bold primary yellow

* Bold primary green

* Bold primary... err... orange

* Chrome (metal front just like the back)

* Custom made by Apple with company/school/team colors/patterns painted inside the clear. Available only in bulk orders.

But even more fun:

* Full-size iPod coming soon in black? (non-U2)

* Next wave of iBooks and iMacs available in black? A black iMac would look great.

If I were Apple, and had to control cost and inventory, I'd make the low-end model of each Mac and iPod (even nano) only in white. Make black (or other colors) an option on the higher model. Bingo--more choices without increasing the number of models Apple has to deal with.

Pro machines can stay aluminum. Durable and no-nonsense.

I don't know if people are aware of this, but Colorware does custom coloring and they now have the nano. Kinda pricey but I've read that they do a very professional job. You can also send yours in to have it colored.

Here's their image gallery of the nano:

You can also have a different wheel color (costs extra I believe). You can interactively see them here:

Putty

What's wrong with putty? It was good enough for the entire PC industry for nearly twenty years (including Macs). Just when all of the copycats have gone to black, dark blue and gray and are crapping themselves over Apple's next move, BAM! You reach back in time and get putty!

Pretty soon, all the cool kids are going to be saying, "I want my PuttyPod!" And, we'll be hangin' out at my website www.puttypods.com. Oh, yeah!

One reader bought an iPod nano for his wife. He tells the story: "I asked her which one she wanted and she initally said black, until I pointed out that the headphones would still be white. She thought it would be better to have a white iPod with white headphones."
If only there were somewhere you could buy black headphones separately...

I guess if you really like Apple's earbuds it might be a factor, but at the risk of causing a backlash, I have to say I didn't find the iPod earbuds to be anything special.
