Stephen Williams writes about iPod and iTunes in his latest column for Newsday.

“But Jobs, Apple’s silky- smooth chief executive, thinks he’s got the “complete solution” for the record industry’s woes, even as he insists that Apple is neither a media company nor a music company. (“We’re just Apple,” he recently told an interviewer from Esquire, apparently with a straight face). If Apple’s new iTunes Music Store, combined with the appeal of the iPod, isn’t the Great White-and-Chrome Hope of the labels, it’s the closest, best thing they’ve got.”

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.
