    I am looking for a USB LED light for my Airport Extreme.
    I would like it in red or blue.
    I have been looking online, but to no avail.
    Your assistance is appreciated.

    I am going to plug it in the AirPort so it will be lit; that is why I wanted in red or blue.
    There are some out there, but the light looks cumbersome.
    Here is what I wanted, but in red or blue: http://store.h-sq.com/HSQ-USB-LED-BACKLIGHT-S.html

    I may have to settle for something like you linked.

    If you're into DIY and you're handy with a soldering iron, you can always get one of these and a spare USB cable and resistor and rig it up yourself :) (Hint: The red wire in the USB is +5VDC and the black is ground.)

    Thanks for the info, I have a soldering iron I used to change out pickups on my guitars.
    And, I got a few USB cables lying around, I may try that.
