Apple removes iPod Socks from online store

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
iPod Socks, a cloth accessory that Apple has sold for years to protect its portable music players, have been removed from the company's online store.

Socks


A reader alerted AppleInsider to the disappearance of the product on Wednesday. It's unclear exactly when the product was removed from the Apple Store, however a Google search still returns a link to Apple's online store as the first result.

The iPod Socks were first introduced by Apple in 2004. They came in a pack of six colorful sleeves that were meant to hold an iPod of any size, and protect it from scratches.

This happened months ago.

 

But… now what will we deride as a pointless accessory? lol.gif They killed off the $100 leather iPod case even earlier!

This doesn't make any sense. Winter's coming soon, my ipod's gonna catch its death of cold if it can't snuggle up in a nice warm sock.

Could never get iPod socks to work properly.

Besides, iPhone gloves were always more practical; no taking shoes off in public etc.

Oh come on, that' obvious - the new iPhone won't just fit in anymore!
I am using those socks on my 4S still every day and it fits perfectly.
The obvious reason they are not being produced anymore (and it's really a very old product) is the products have changed a lot.

Clearly the first steps to Apple's liquidation and bankrupcy.

Expect a downward spiral to APPL $500.00 because of this.

The reason they were pulled is because the Sock Monkey threatened to sue Apple. He holds the design patent on 2 color, rectangular socks.
