Stupid iPad 2 trick: Make your white bezel glow

The white iPad 2 does something the black version doesn't: its bezel absorbs light.

Chalk this one up as a stupid iPad 2 trick, but it's just another thing Apple fanboys (and fangirls) can crow about. That's right, the iPad 2's bezel glows when you hold a light up to it, which makes for an interesting "Tron" effect when you turn the lights out. A colored laser pointer can also spice things up a bit with a green or red hue.

As 9to5Mac notes, we should brace ourselves for the oncoming onslaught of iPad 2 bezel-lighting accessories.
