Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2006
Heading into this year's all-important holiday season, and hot on the heels of major new iPod and accessory releases, leading independent iPod resource iLounge.com today announced the impending release of its 2007 iPod Buyers' Guide, the latest addition to its successful series of iPod and accessory publications. Scheduled to debut on November 1, 2006, the new Guide will continue its predecessors' key traditions: it will be a free, PDF-format download for all of iLounge's millions of readers, guiding them (and their families) to the world's best iPod accessories.
"With over 60 million iPods now in the marketplace - including three just-released models - and literally thousands of iPod accessories to choose from, it's harder than ever for average people to sort through all of their options," said Dennis Lloyd, Publisher of iLounge. "Our 2007 Guide cuts through all that. We've spent literally thousands of hours since the iPod's 2001 launch testing all of the essential accessories out there, and this Guide will make it easy for you to find them."
iLounge's previous publications have been downloaded millions of times, and widely acclaimed for their accuracy, comprehensiveness, and utility. Lauded by leading mainstream journalists such as The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg as the "free manual on getting the most from your iPod" and deemed the "iPod Bible" by top international Apple enthusiast publications such as Mac Format, iLounge's most recent 202-page tutorial edition The Free iPod Book is now at version 2.2, and available from iLounge's Library of free downloads (http://ilounge.com/library). While The Free iPod Book focuses on "how-tos," iLounge's Buyers' Guides focus on "what to buy, and where."
"Like our past editions, the 2007 iPod Buyers' Guide will be the ultimate resource for Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holiday iPod and accessory purchases," explained Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief of iLounge and the Buyers' Guide. "As we've said before, there's no need to burn your cash on some outdated newsstand or bookstore iPod accessory guide - save your money for new toys. Our 2007 Guide will let you print multiple copies of your favorite pages, so you can create easy photographic wish lists of the new iPods and accessories you want. You'll find - and get - the best new iPod products out there, smarter and faster than ever before."
Benefitting from iLounge's massive community, thousands of reviews, photographs, and artistic renderings, the 2007 iPod Buyers' Guide will also include user-contributed art, photos, and more. As always, the Guide will be advertising-supported, with a final advertising submission deadline of October 23, 2006. For additional information on editorial submissions, contact Jeremy Horwitz by email; advertising inquiries should be addressed solely to Dennis Lloyd by email.
