i think they're 'socks' for your ipod, not ipod socks for your feet...

Yeah, I watched the Special event live and they're to carry your iPod around in :)
I wouldn't buy them, but my girlfriend reckons they're cute :P

I might get one. I know my iSkin is getting a few holes in it now. Silly thing.

are they trying to prove a point that the iPod is just as important as our feet, thus the need for socks :blink:

I'm going to get them, they do look kinda fun.
It's kinda funny how no other 3rd party manufacturer has released something like this yet (that i know of), its seem so simple, yet pretty cool.
I especially liked the way Steve Jobs introduced them on stage. pure jobs, and pure gold.

They are not on the apple.com.au store as far as i can see!

Anyone else can see them?

Yeah, i agree, you would think iSkin would have created socks by now, since socks seem to be popular with phones.

I wonder if anyone is interested in a "group buy" of iPod socks?
My girlfriend only wants a blue one, not the other colours, so if I can get people to buy the other colours, I'll get the pack, and we can split the cost for each of them + postage (or no postage if you're picking up from my place).

Thanks

They're not going to be available until mid-November, so I don't think you'll see them on the store for a while.

I'd be up for that decryption.

Red for me. Or maybe Green, or purple or orange. hehe. Not too fussed.

My girlfriend wants the pink one so I'm happy to pick them up for 1/6 of the total price :D Thanks!

More info about them here:

Text taken from Apple iPod Socks description page:

"Dress your iPod up in any one of six vibrant color socks (green, purple, grey, blue, orange, and pink). This set of six knit socks provides a stylish, fun, and practical way to protect your iPod. Supports all iPods."


Shouldnt be a problem with your iPod Mini scruffie.

Since when was grey a "vibrant colour" or am I missing something here?! :lol:

lol Ozi, it's not actually grey - the marketing people slipped up and forgot to say that it's the colour of 'aircraft-grade aluminium'! ;)

I want the dark blue but seeing it is taken, should we set up another thread, for more people that want only one iPod sock?

Hahaha. I used to appreciate the irony in my cousin, who does fashion stuff, carrying around her iPod in a slightly ratty looking white sports sock instead of a stylish case. But now, I guess she was actually ahead of the curve...

I would pay a bit more and buy an iPod instead :P

nah just kidding. If you are a student or can get edu price, its: $41.80

Some genius should buy a few packs of iSocks at student price ($41), and set up a website selling individual colours. Chuck a (free?) banner on here, and there's a possibility of profit. :ph34r:

I did some reading and I think the iPod socks may be a seasonal thing... so order them now, they may never again grace the Apple shelves.

When I first saw the iPod socks I thought "why?!"

Then I got iPod socks for Xmas. "Great", I thought, "WTF am I going to do with 6 of these? I only have 1 iPod!"...

Well I'm using one on my iPod

One on my mobile so it doesn't get scratched when it's in my pocket with keys, lighter, etc (and it works well - phone slips out of the sock easily enough to not take entra time to answer and I don't have to worry about what's in the same pocket as my phone any more)

A third on my digital camera to protect the screen as the bag that came with it was not very appealing

I must say I'm actually quite impressed with them. They don't look bad, they are a nice simple slip-case and they have stopped my iPod, phone and camera from getting scratched.
