    that's really all they're good for....only diehard apple enthusiasts (geeks) would wear them for any amount of time.

    I just hope that the next Apple event provides some thing a little more useful - mouse pad, t-shirt, apple pen. Hell, at a convention you'd get better stuff as free give aways at the booths.....

    Heh it reminds me of something that i said when I first got here, upon encounterng my first true pc slaughtering mac zealot:

    "...ya know if Apple released a paper bag full of a processor and a hard drive the mac community and yourself included would tout it as industrial design, and new and innovative. Give it up already and get off your soapbox man..."

    Paraphrased of course ;)

    I think that the ebay "market" is pretty much established for mouse pads..... but the dog tags have a novelty value?

    So they're thought of as more "Unique" than the mouse pad..... you think that's possible?

    Maybe - which is sad - cause now Apple is going to try and perpetuate this stupidity and provide its fans with even more 'novelty' items.

    Lets see, Apple Swizzle sticks, faux Panther Feet (like rabbits feet for good luck), Apple book marks, Apple temporay tatoos......they could just get a deal with Cracker Jack and have the Apple Toy Surpise ......;)

    oh, i forgot - when they get to Saber Tooth - we can go to the faux Saber Tooth canine necklace ;)

    Actually, Saber Tooth would be a damn cool name for another OSX +0.1 upgrade.....

    Well honestly, I wouldn't wear the dogtags either. It's way geeky, and besides...who wears dogtags? I think $25 is a bit much for them, and since there will likely be hundreds going up for sale in the near future, their value will be insignificant.

    A mousepad I'd use though. ;)

    I got a mouse pad at the Jaguar release, never used it though. The dog tags are neat. I have been wearing mine, don't think that I'm crazy. Would not pay $25 though.
