From all of us here at iLounge, happy new year! We will be on a limited publication schedule through the weekend as we celebrate with our families and friends.

2010 was quite a year for us and for the Apple ecosystem—the opening of the first-ever iLounge Pavilion, the launch of the iPad, a new iPhone, new iPods, a new Apple TV, a new version of iTunes (complete with a new logo), and more—and 2011 is shaping up to be quite exciting as well, starting with the second year of the iLounge Pavilion, which is now the biggest TechZone at CES.

Feel free to browse through our archives throughout the weekend, and be sure to join us next week as we travel to Las Vegas to bring you live coverage from the show. Have a great 2011!
