I think they’re funny.  I’m not buying any, mind you, but they’re funny.

It’s a free market economy….. if you want an iPod sock or Armani sweater or Mercedes or Burberry iPod case or a pair of Levi’s, go buy and enjoy. If they don’t appeal to you,  then have a generic cola if that’s your choice and get over it.

narco, Nagromme, I agree with you cats… If you don’t like them, don’t buy them.  But don’t tell me your not going to eventually end up with them. 

And why is this “retail markup” concept such news to so many people?  There is nothing you can buy at ANY store that isn’t retail marked up.  Even on sale, the products are STILL above wholesale cost.  Why would Apple be any different?

As a shareholder, I’d hope they wouldn’t be.

cheers

For that price, the short cotton sock iPod bags better come with a $20 bill.

My “marked up” socks that I buy from the store come in a half-dozen pair for $10.

Come to think about it, that price is in US dollars…  Use traditionally skewed Apple accounting practices to overcharge Canadians even more for an absurd currency conversion, and they expect me to pay $39 CDN plus taxes.

Maybe I’ll just buy a CD for $12 CDN from a store instead.

Apple has sunk to a new low.

Puppykicker I think what he was saying is that you pay for the name. Not the product. If you want quality, like the Vaja cases, then you would go for a Volvo instead of a Mercedes. Personally I think Vaja cases are ugly (Volvo’s), but I love the look of JAVOedge cases (Mercedes). Do you see the diference? One offers quality while the other offers looks. In the end, you pay for the name.

zip - was making a joke you didn’t seem to get. anyways, i’m just hoping they can get a good case out for the ipod photo, then they can worry about socks and underwear for it.

I think it’s sometimes easy to overlook the detailed genius of Apple design. I bought these because I considered how I already use the standard Apple iPod case is the same way I’d use the sock. The sock will have the advantage, however, of protecting the sides of the iPod, and won’t have the belt clip sticking out. As for the extra socks, they could be white elephant gifts, or traded with friends.

I just love them! The design is perfect, the colors wonderful and the silliness is perfect. Best iPod sleeve in the world…. and Apple is the only company who cloud have designed them. Fantastic idea: socks, cause every other iPod case sucks i.m.h.o.

Worth every dollar!!
