Apple iPod Socks
Advantages: fun, practical
Disadvantages: accessing controls
Before I upgraded my Ipod to having a rubbery outer case, I had a protective sock for mine. They seem to have dropped in price, as when I bought mine it was about five pounds for one sock, whereas now you can buy an pack of six for about ten pounds.
You can probably guess what they are used for. They offer protection for the Ipod. You simply slide the device inside the sock and it keeps it snug and safe while you are on your travels. I remember when I got mine, it came in handy for train journeys and holidays. At the airport, I was forever taking my Ipod in and out of my bag, so this sock thing kept it safe in the bag and helped stopped it getting scratched.
The sock is made from a stretchy material and you can wash them if they get dirty. The Apple logo is on the sock, but inferior market rip offs do exist! The device will slide in with ease and slide back out with a little prizing. On the downside, you cannot operate the Ipod properly while it is inside the sock, but then you probably wouldn't want to.
What would have enhanced the sock for me was if it had holes to access the controls and a better choice of colours or skins. I always felt pictures of your favourite artists would have enhanced the design. How about an Enya Ipod sleeve or a Kylie sleeve?
The socks can be bought online and from HMV and will keep any Ipod free from scratches. If you drop it on concrete though from a great height, there is only so much this sock is going to do! A novelty purchase but also one that makes sense.
Summary: pleasing idea
