iPod Socks Arrive

So I got my package of iPod Socks from Apple yesterday. They’re nice, but not exactly what I was expecting.

They’re quite small and stretchy. For some reason the pictures on the Apple web site led me to believe they would be slightly larger and stiffer, almost like wool socks. I guess I thought the socks were standing up in the picture, as opposed to lying on a table or something. In retrospect, though, I should’ve expected the smaller, stretchier design; a larger, stiffer sock probably wouldn’t hold an iPod mini that well.

Most of the colors are pretty close to what Apple shows on the web site. The blue wasn’t as bright as I expected, though the green is slightly brighter. I wonder if there’s much color variation between packages or production runs?

I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple’s right and these end up being big holiday sellers — I can certainly see them as decent quick/small gifts. My question is, what the heck are you supposed to do with 6 of them?!? My plan is to keep one sock with my iPod when it’s in my car and split the rest of the box with a few other people. I seriously doubt I’d have bought a six pack if I hadn’t known other people who were interested.
