picAs promised several weeks ago, iLounge is proud to announce the immediate availability of the iLounge Buyers’ Guide 2004 for free download from the links and locations below. It contains the world’s first review of Apple’s new iPod Photo.

For the unfamiliar, iLounge’s Buyers’ Guide is a complete, magazine-style guide to everything iPod and iLounge, with trustworthy previews and reviews of the very best iPod accessories, guides to getting free iPod software and support, and much, much more. We’ve designed the Guide so you can print only the pages you want, and give them to your family and friends as very specific holiday “gimme iPod” reminders.

By reader demand, the Guide contains a complete report card of the over 200 iPod-related products that have been reviewed by iLounge, and features the incredible art and photography of iLounge readers from around the world.

We have taken a completely new approach to distributing this magazine. Instead of asking our readers to cough up $6 to buy the Guide in a store, we are providing it for free online and taking mass advantage of file-sharing networks to spread it around the world.

This is only possible thanks to the support of our awesome readers and loyal advertisers:



Please use the link below to Tell A Friend or three about the Buyers’ Guide 2004, and help them have a holiday season full of iPod music. We hope you enjoy the Guide!

The file requires a password to print at high quality… Really frustrating I have to look at low quality prints from my $5,000 printer.

Denis et al,

given all the superlatives associated with the accessories and cases section of the guide (eg definitive guide) I was wondering why there is no mention of Lajo Xskn 4G skins?

surely, this is a significant omission from the guide.

I grant you that there is mention of 3G skins, however, given the high rating for the 3G skin, the 4G skin wiith it’s iTrip friendly improvement would surely have again topped the rating?

Piquet - I’ve sent a private message to you re: your question. In short, we attempted to contact Lajo before the Guide was released and received no response (really the only company we heard nothing back from). We remain willing and able to review all of his products, but we can’t recommend what we haven’t received.

i’d love to spend $6 on this awesome mag. does anybody know if they have this in stores? i tried to print it but it won’t come out right. i don’t mind shelling out $$ on this well-thought out, organized and very informative magazine.

As I respect your bandwidth and transfer limit, I will sacrifice some of my own for a good cause:)

The server can handle thousands of connections at a time, and the speeds are good enough to satisfy anyone:)

Merry Christamas all!
