iLounge announces free 2004 Buyers’ Guide

picNeed to drop a strong hint that you want an iPod or accessories for the holidays? Want to do it for free? iLounge has the answer. On November 1, 2004, we will release the iLounge Buyers’ Guide 2004, a completely free way for our over 1.2 million readers to tell their friends and family which gifts they want to receive.

That’s right. We said completely free. This is our way of showing our continued commitment to keeping the world’s best iPod information free for the world’s best readers.

The iLounge Buyers’ Guide will be a PDF-format magazine including reviews of the world’s top iPod accessories and previews of upcoming products, an easy-to-read iLounge Report Card on the hundreds of products we’ve reviewed, and much, much more. Print pages for your family’s shopping lists.

More details will be announced in the days leading up to November 1. For media and advertising information, please contact Dennis Lloyd.

Rumor though it may be, it is much more newsworthy than “Man eats roaches for iPOD” !

Buyer’s guide, even without advertising, is a form of advertising, because it not only introduces products but also indirectly encourage people to buy the products introduced in this guide. the problem is unavoidable unless it only reviews on products that are free. Thats why companies, like the one which makes ultimate ears, often ask famous websites such as ipodlounge to write reviews on their products.

If you dont have anything good to say just shut up. Im tired if negative people, if you “Dont like it” dont read it. I dont live in the U.S and this helps me be to read events and stuff people do for an ipod.

I love the site.

Ya know we sure do live in the age of self focus. To the cheap shot folk, get a life! There are children in ever growing poverty, there are people dying in a stupid war, and the world desperately needs leadership. Meanwhile you whine about your expensive toys.

Me, I visit ipodlounge every day and can’t wait to click on. I really appreciate the variety of information, the updates on the latest, and usually, the comments of others regarding products and advances.

Dennis, thank you for a great site - it reflects your enthusiasm for iPod and it is a quality site. Thank you for the Buyers Guide, I am ready to download now! I have no doubt as to the fairness and also enjoy reading ads because it keeps me current on what is happening.

Please ignore the cheap shots and keep up the great work!

So how much technical expertise would you need to read this thing?  Few of my relatives are tech-savvy, so something relatively simple would be nice.

Very little technical expertise. The Buyers’ Guide is being designed from the ground up to be super easy to read and navigate.

Agreed - quit yer whining. iPodlounge is a great site. (But please don’t bring up a just war in an argument for the site….)

Would it be possible to also post a non-PDF version—say an HTML version? I personally think Adobe Acrobat Reader is terrible (especially on windows, ugh).

Acrobat Reader can be set to display the pages as part of your browser I believe. At least the versions I have been using recently do - you get a pop-up asking if you want it to do this.
It might improve your viewing pleasure…

A brief update on the Guide is now available at iPodlounge Backstage. We cleared a major hurdle today, too.
