Buy a sexy red iPod, fight AIDS in Africa?

iPod nano (PRODUCT) REDAt first I thought this was a late-night fever dream or some sort of hack, but apparently it's legit: buy a $200 USD ($230 Cdn) iPod nano in the just-announced red colour, and $10 goes to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.

No, the red one doesn't cost any more than the other 4 GB iPod nanos. It would, of course, be better to send $200 to an AIDS charity, but if you're going to buy a nano anyway, go for the new colour, I say.

The official name is iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED, by the way, which is very weird, but has to do with the whole thing.
