company said it chose the product because "the price is low enough for almost

has instant mass appeal."
"Iogear is honored to
partner with Susan G. Komen for the Cure," said James Hsieh, CEO of Iogear, in
a statement. "There are so many incredible causes, and choosing our first major
corporate fundraising partner was tough, but it's important that our support

important awareness about breast cancer while the services provide immeasurable
help to those affected. We're proud to be part of the Komen family."
