C|Net: colour changes hurting accessory makers

NEWS.COM: Accessory makers stranded by iMac color change -- Ouch. Of course, this isn't the first time this has happened, and it's long been rumoured that new colours were coming, so if companies were unprepared for this they need to do their homework a little better.

There's at least 2 million iMacs out there in the fruity colours -- they'll be out there for years to come. I wouldn't strand those users by stopping to make accessories in those colours yet. They'll be buying accessories for those for quite a while.
