IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world's leading independent authority on Apple's iPods, iPhones, and iPads, iLounge.com today announced the expansion of iLounge + Mac (http://mac.ilounge.com), its curated gallery devoted to Apple's Mac computers, accessories, and software. Soft-launched in March 2011 as a brand new section of the massive iLounge web site, iLounge + Mac has now grown to include hundreds of different items from leading developers, each hand-selected for excellence in design and/or functionality by a team of expert editors.
"iLounge + Mac is a natural extension of our pioneering work in the iPod, iPhone, and iPad ecosystems," explained Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief of iLounge. "Thanks to Apple's increasing desktop and notebook computer market share, millions of new Mac users are now demanding accessories and software that were developed first for Macs -- not just Windows PC products offering Apple compatibility as an afterthought. iLounge + Mac spotlights the developers and add-ons that are making home, school, and office computing cool."
The special iLounge + Mac section is divided into 10 categories, including conventional cases, peripherals, and speakers, as well as Mac-ready furniture, decor items, and digital camera gear. Beautiful photography, easily digestible product summaries, and intriguing designs are hallmarks of iLounge + Mac, which covers everything from free Mac apps to $60 docking stations, $200 speakers, and $5,000 desks. New items are added to the collection each weekday, and past items are updated as additional information and photography become available.
"We were Mac fans long before Apple released the first iPod," noted Dennis Lloyd, Publisher of iLounge, "and we spent a long time waiting for the Mac to build the same sort of critical mass that iPods, iPhones, and iPads have rapidly developed in recent years. Today, thanks to great new products such as MacBook Airs, the Mac App Store, and the OS X Lion operating system, Apple is redefining computers and the software they run. We created iLounge + Mac as a gallery of the most interesting Apple and third-party Mac products around, and designed it to be easy to revisit every day."
Submissions for iLounge + Mac are welcomed. Interested vendors may contact Nick Guy, iLounge's Accessories Editor, at email@example.com to submit products for editorial consideration. As with all iLounge editorial coverage, there is no charge for submissions; all items are selected solely on the basis of merit and without paid placement of any sort.
