“For several weeks I’ve been avoiding the iPod mini like a nasty disease.

At the grand opening of the new Apple store in San Francisco, the iPod product manager, Danika Cleary, tried to persuade me to check one out, but I refused.

‘No thanks, I don’t want to hold it,’ I told her. ‘I don’t even want to look at it, because then I’d have to buy one.”

I know the seductive power of Apple’s products, and the iPod mini gives off irresistible ‘buy me’ vibes. The mini casts a spell, a shopping hex that pulls you irresistibly toward the cash register.”

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.
