Stay on Bono's good side with a red iPod

Fire-engine red player to help fight AIDS

Oh yeah, and do good, too. Today, Apple sneaked onto its store a special edition fire-engine red nano branded with the PRODUCT(RED) logo on the back. Apple donates $10 from each sale to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa as part of the (RED) campaign, which Bono and friends created "to engage the private sector in the fight against AIDS in Africa."

The red nano looks to be no different from its 4GB pals (in pink, blue, green, and silver) and costs the same. And, dare I say, it looks a lot hotter than the iPod U2 of yesteryear. (See more photos here.)
