Griffin ships two 5G cases
Griffin Technology today began shipping its Centerstage and Disko (pictured at right) iPod cases, offering iPod owners two new ways to protect and use their portable players. Centerstage shows off the iPod in a clear hard shell case, offering protection with a colorful anodized aluminum cover -- available in silver, blue, black, or hot pink -- that flips open and under to create a sturdy easel stand for hands-free viewing. Disko is designed as a functional iPod case that senses movements and responds with moving colored lights that outline the iPod's clickwheel. Disko's colored LEDs are powered by two tiny wafer batteries (included), negating the need to draw from the iPod's own battery charge. Both Centerstage ($25) and Disko ($30) work with 30GB, 60GB, and 80GB video iPods.
