LoadPod, the company that created the iPod loading industry, has begun offering three new services in time for the upcoming 2005 Holiday Season, as part of its stable of nationwide in-person iPod services. In early 2004, LoadPod became the first-ever company to begin loading iPod users' existing CD collections into their iPods for them, by assembling a nationwide network of more than one hundred local service professionals. This focus on local, in-person service ensured that no LoadPod customer would ever need to ship his or her fragile CD collection across the country in order to receive service. By offering free home pickup and delivery of equipment anywhere in the United States, LoadPod was able to offer a unique nationwide service that has yet to be matched by any other company on any level.
In time for the 2005 Holiday Season, LoadPod has launched a new service in which customers who have lost the data on their computer due to a crash or drive failure can have the music in their iPod copied back into iTunes on their computer. This new in-home service allows iPod users who find themselves in such a situation to avoid the complicated and little-understood process of moving music from their iPod to their computer. As with all LoadPod services, the new iPod-to-computer transfer service is available nationwide.
In recognition of the fact that all full-size iPod models now come with color screens capable of displaying album artwork, LoadPod has also recently added an album artwork option for those customers with color-screen iPods. Although iPods don't generally display album artwork for music that was loaded from CDs, this new service allows customers to have album artwork attached to every song that LoadPod loads into their iPod.
LoadPod has also recently announced that in addition to its iPod loading service, customers can now opt to instead have their CDs loaded into their external USB hard drive. This allows music lovers to have their entire CD collection in compressed digital format even if they have yet to purchase an iPod, or if the size of their CD collection exceeds the capacity of their iPod. LoadPod's new hard drive loading service is available nationwide, and customers can choose their preferred format and bitrate at no additional charge.
"Last year we invented the iPod loading industry, but this year has proven to be even more exciting as we've continued to lead our industry with new offerings and services designed to help the nation's twenty-five million iPod users get the most out of their investment with the least amount of hassle," said Bill Palmer, LoadPod's President and Founder. "Our customers asked for these three new services, and we're proud to have all of them immediately available nationwide as we head into the 2005 Holiday Season. The iPod is once again going to be the hottest-selling holiday gift this year, and we look forward to embracing these new iPod users with open arms. We've loaded millions of songs into thousands of iPods, and our service has proven to be so popular among iPod users that we've added additional personnel in major cities in order to ensure that we'll keep up with the ever-increasing demand for our services."
All of LoadPod's services are available nationwide by placing an order on LoadPod's website at http://www.LoadPod.com or by calling toll-free 1-866-LOADPOD (562-3763).
