’Tis the season for gadget launches

Cardboardlaptopcase_1 A lot of cool gadgets—and their accessories—in the news today. There’s the Palm Treo 680, and in a move so synergistic that even we could have thought of it, Apple is launching the iPod nano Red, as part of the consumer-goods-with-a-cause Red effort to fight poverty. It was launched yesterday by Bono—he of the U2 branded iPod—and Oprah. But what really caught our eye is the laptop case above, made out of 100 percent recycled corrugated cardboard. Very cool— though as Engadget asks, how does this thing fare in the rain?
