The Age: Owners and iPods: a love story with the sweetest sounds

“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.
