iPod socks: useful or useless? The debate rages on.

iPod socks

We’ve kept you up to date with cutting edge developments on Apple’s latest release: the iPod socks. This week we bring you the news that fully one-third of Macworld UK readers consider the socks “Stupid.” As one reader rants:


“They are without doubt the worse thing Apple has ever come up with. They look cheap and tacky. They look like tea cosies. The opposite of what I expect from Apple.”

However, almost half of those polled got a chuckle out of Apple’s “nice seasonal joke,” while one-quarter consider getting a tea cosie for their iPod the “perfect Christmas present.”

That’s right, folks, it’s all the news that’s fit to print here at TUAW, and a good smattering of news that isn’t. Care for a tea cosie?
