All Things iPod, iPhone, iPad and Beyond
Introduction

iLounge® is an independent provider of information about Apple Inc.'s iPod, iPhone and iPad digital media players, accessories, and related software, published online at www.ilounge.com

Established as a domain only days after the October 23, 2001 announcement of the iPod, the iLounge site was originally built by Dennis Lloyd and HTML Guru Dennis Martin. Fully functional on November 16, 2001, the site has grown dramatically from its early days, hosting daily news updates, independent product reviews and editorial content, incredible discussion forums and photo galleries, software download and self-help pages.

iLounge rapidly became the Internet's top site for iPod users and information, with an audience that has expanded with the growth of the iPod platform. Only two years after its premiere, iLounge was receiving over three million page hits per month. By mid-2004, the number was five, and by the end of that year, it was ten. Today, it is well in excess of twenty. Approximately four million people now visit the site each month, ranging from casual passers-by to dedicated participants. iLounge and its editors have appeared in leading newspapers such as The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, magazines such as Newsweek and Time, numerous international publications, and television and radio broadcasts including CNBC, G4 Tech TV (Canada), the leading tech broadcast on KFI Radio, and leading public radio station WNYC.

Our slogan began as "All Things iPod," and has evolved to become "All Things iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Beyond." iLounge is committed to providing the world's best coverage of iPod-, iPhone- and iPad-related products and breaking information, so we welcome your contributions to the site, whether they be through posts in our forums, offerings of new editorial content, or advertising requests.
