InCase and DC Shoe Co. have co-developed a cool case that will hold your PowerBook, iPod, and skateboard. While the concept sounds good, the bag may be a tad pricey at US$120. The other problem is that the camoflage beast looks like it got hit with the ugly stick – which means that the skate community will probably love it. Links and a picture at Gizmodo.

Consumers can take old computers and other electronics to Office Depot (ODP) stores for free recycling this summer, the retailer and its partner Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) are expected to announce Tuesday.
H-P already offers PC recycling via mail. But it charges about $35 for shipping and processing. Most of its rivals charge as well. That’s why the free offer is “fabulous,” says Kate Krebs of the non-profit National Recycling Coalition.
The offer includes all brands, not just those made by H-P. From Sunday to Sept. 6, Office Depot will accept computers, monitors and most other peripherals, digital cameras, copiers, fax machines, cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and TVs 27 inches or smaller. Customers can recycle one product per day. A PC and its peripherals count as a single item. (USAToday).

This is a major concern, because it limits the number of systems Apple can ship and may even further delay any hopes of a G5 PowerBook (which will be a huge money maker when it ships).
