Cnet has a picture of an "iPod sock" made by apple. Yet I cannot find it on their website.

Has anyone else seen where to buy it?

That is retarded. Am I the only one that didn't find the sock with holes in it on ebay not funny, especially after the link plauged the internet for weeks.

The fact the apple is going to make a sock for their ipod seems really retarded (I am going to guess this is based on the "success" of that ebay ad and its lack of humor. I dunno I can't imagine someone pulling a sock out of thieir pocket and pulling an ipod out from it. I think the radtech pod sleeve is the closest an ipod case should get to a sock.

I think I could buy a dozen socks for less than $29. Any takers? I'll sell you one (unused) sock of any color for five bucks? Come on, it's a great deal!!! Six dollars used.....

Apple needs to make charms that hang off of the iSock. iCharms. The coolest accessory for your iPod yet.

I think Apple is having some fun with the 3rd party accessory companies.

At this point they can afford some gratuitous nonsense products, I mean the iPod is probably the most trend setting product Apple has ever created next to the Macintosh itself.

Can we expect iPod pajamas soon? :p

The logical part of me says 29.99+tax USD for socks is retarded.
The rest of me REALLY WANTS THEM!!!

and it will SELL

It may sound funny at first but this will sell.
It's totally tuned to our times.
All the cases one can buy either make the ipod look ugly, or more complicated or bigger…
This sock is what young people are looking for.
It has this "nature" feel to it. The texture is not cold but rather inviting to touch it. You have different colours that match your personality and taste (like the mini). And it's not about squeezing your pod in a tight silicon case but it's more like putting it to rest in a cosy sock.
As I said it might sound silly but this is market research at its best.


These will sell like mad for the holidays.

Well, given that the new iPod Photo allows up to 15K pics and one-handed access to them, given a large young male audience (not predominantly young male - just a lot of young male owners) and what category those pics might fall into, I fear what those socks might actually be used for... but I'm not surprised Apple waited for the Photo to release them. ;)
