iLounge interviews, um, everyone about new iPods

David Chartier
Ok, maybe not 'everyone,' but they certainly made the rounds to a healthy portion of companies who have just about anything to do with the iPod. iLounge asked for general reactions of the new products from the likes of Griffin, Altec Lansing, Pacific Rim, Targus, TechRestore and even the Chief iPodification Officer of iPopMyPhoto and Plenty of other companies sounded off with reactions, and (of course) just about everyone got a word in on the status of their products, whether they'll work with the new iPods (save for the shuffle, many products should be fine) and what they have coming down the pipeline. While some of the reactions may be packed with more marketing than genuine answers, it's still a good overall 'state of the iPod universe' article, providing a nice communication channel between the accessory manufacturers and their adoring fans. I haven't seen a post like this before from iLounge, but I hope they keep 'em coming.

[Update: Jeremy Horwitz of iLounge let us know in the comments that they actually have been doing these types of posts for a while, and they even have an archive. Thanks Jeremy!]

As a multimedia student in Denver, CO, David Chartier has his hands in the design, web and Apple industries. After his first IBM PC in high-school got him hooked, Dave hit the ground running - tinkering with just about everything you can do with and to a computer. After getting into design school and catching the Apple bug in 2001, Dave's obsessions focused on what's coming next in the worlds of graphic, video and web design. On the rare occasion Dave is without his MacBook Pro, you'll probably find him either on his snowboard in Breckenridge or a local bike trail.
