The iPodlounge has announced the launch of an online iPod User Group. Members will meet on the first Monday of every month via iChat and AOL AIM beginning at 6:00 p.m. ET. Each chat will include iPod gear giveaways, a feature discussion with an industry expert or accessory manufacturer, discounts and information regarding the iPod/iPod mini, tips, hacks, mods, latest gear updates and more. To join the free user group, iPod owners must be a registered member of the iPodlounge forums, which currently have more than 18,000 iPod fans. The first meeting will take place on May 3.
