Sockarooni! Maybe it's a generational thing: you see, I think of receiving underwear for the holidays as, well... kind of a let-down. But here's Apple to the rescue! Starting in early December (pre-orders available now!), iPod aficionados can purchase a $30 six-pack of iPod Socks! First seen at the recent unveiling of the iPod Photo, the knit socks come in orange, pink, blue, grey, purple, and green, and fit all sizes of iPod. According to Apple, "just slide your iPod into the sock to keep it safe and warm. Slide it out to dock or change playlists." No word yet on how these socks might or might not accommodate iPod add-ons like voice recorders.

But so many unanswered questions! Cotton? Wool? Maybe a blend - ooh! With spandex for elasticity? Do I wash them with similar colors? Do dryers eat iPod Socks? Do cats chase them? And when can I pre-order some iPod Shoes? [GD]
