I remember the early days of iLounge, when it was actually called “iPodLounge.”  Then Apple started stamping out everything that wasn’t theirs with the word “iPod” in the title.  Back in those days, a reader could comment directly at the end of a published review and ask questions of the reviewer or add his or her own two cents, etc.  Unfortunately, this led to a lot of suspected shilling on the part of some manufacturers so that now review comments are restricted to the Forum.  Not nearly as much fun.  And then there were the occasional iPodLounge podcasts by Jeremy and Bob…

Congrats to iLounge for doing such a good job over the years, especially as the number of Apple related products has grown exponentially over that time.  I still never buy anything Apple without first consulting this website.

Hah, what fun the podcasts were! They were a challenge with the distances involved (UK-CA) - even when Jeremy was in Paris for the Apple Expo. You’d think being so near we’d manage a glitch free recording but road works outside the hotel put paid to that!

Thanks for your continued support.
