New Belkin iPod cases to support breast cancer research

Creating breast-cancer awareness through gadgets is not a new one. Belkin's new Nano cases provide yet another opportunity.

In all likelihood, there are far fewer than six degrees of separation between you and breast cancer, and the idea of breast cancer awareness through gadgets is not a new one. So why not support a good cause through consumerism? Belkin's new Nano cases provide yet another opportunity for doing so, with 10 percent of the proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. (Belkin is promising a minimum $100,000 donation.) One eligible cases is the "Hope" Remix Metal for iPod nano ($29.99), which is constructed of durable acrylic and brushed pink metal and features a removable carabiner. The other is the Sport Armband for iPod nano ($29.99), which is a water-resistant, fitness-friendly case with light-pink detailing. The latter is a particular compelling gift idea for a female friend or family member as "exercise substantially reduces the odds of ever getting breast cancer, lengthens survival, and considerably enhances quality of life for women with breast cancer."
