“In a world increasingly absorbed by digital entertainment, an electronic phenomenon called the Apple iPod reigns as king of right-in-yer-ear mobile music. Its significance is not in the clarity of its pop tune delivery but the speed with which it has created a series of flourishing new enterprises.

Suddenly there is a new multibillion-dollar industry. More than 50 accessories are available for the tiny white MP3 music player – skins as funky as those made for mobile phones, ear buds, holsters, microphones, FM transmitters – and much else.”

Editor’s note: The Age states iLounge attracts 4 million unique visitors per month, but it should read 3.5 – 4 million page views per month.

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.
