    Mid November Apple will be releasing a case of 6 socks in different colors that fit your iPod perfect. The set will cost $29

    Got the info from Job's Keynote from yesterday

    In my opinion, one of the stupidest things ever...especially at that price!
    $29 for 5 socks, in colors that are absolutely not discreet, and far away from the iPod's elegance... :blind:

    Absolutely un-cool

    Do they smell of brie when the ipod has been wearing them for a few days?

    Actually I thought it said 'sucks' - I was half expecting a troll harping on about a cheap 'ipod killer'

    Actually, if you watch the full keynote presentation (posted at apple.com) Steve actually shows the iPods in their socks. It looks pretty stupid.

    Way to screw up, Apple...

    Oh my god, Apple. Why did you make this? All the 3rd party iPod cases BLOW your sock away. If any one buys this, it wont be used for their iPod... or their foot...

    GOOD LORD.

    I think they're fantastic and I'll defiantly be buying them when they make there way over to the UK. Colourful, fun, crazy - love it. Nice one Apple, something original rather than just another iPod case.

    Maybe this is steve's idea of a joke?

    Anyway, it's certainly taking 'think different' to the extreme...

    Personally I think it's a clever idea. Of course it won't appeal to the hardcore iPod user. But to all those teens and regular folks buying iPods, I guarantee you it's a "hip and crazy" idea that they'll snap up.

    I think this was a brilliant marketing idea by Apple to the teen market. I don't think they screwed up at all. Of course time and the numbers will tell...

    Yeah I think you are right, we'll see! Some might even buy the socks and not even own an iPod...
