“Illegal file-sharing might be getting a smackdown from the recording industry, but downloading music from the Internet has never been more stylish.

Web sites like iTunes, BuyMusic, Musicmatch and the new Napster make it possible to download your favorite songs for $1 each. Some of them even have subscription services that charge a monthly fee for unlimited use, or you can download an album starting at $10.

Now it’s legal and cool.”

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
