iLounge goes to pay-per-view format

Dan Pourhadi

iLounge, in what they describe as "bowing to industry pressure," announced today that previously-free site offerings will now be fee-based. The new subscription service, dubbed iLounge Gold, will provide access for $12.95 a month. Or, if readers prefer, they can pay 99 cents -- much like iTunes -- per page visit. They're also launching a new service called iPod Buddies, "a $65/hour iTunes assistance service for needy readers."

And there's more: "iLounge will also test previously unacceptable content tweaks, including an all-nude version of its iPods Around the World photo galleries, reviews by accessory and service providers, and viral Forum advertising."

Sweet. This looks like a great deal, sign me up.
