I'll Scratch Your Back, But Keep Your Dirty Hands Off My Back

...

From a reader email:

Did you notice how Jack advertises MacMice on Bill Palmer's sites, but Jack doesn't promote Bill Palmer's iPodGarage on his own site?

I do find that interesting, but I will point out that Bill Palmer does relinquish the title of iPod Site God to Dennis Lloyd at iPodLounge. He does make claims often that he will overtake iPodlounge and that membership at iPodgarage is growing every day!

Here is wording from the about section at iPodGarage:

The iPod Garage is the voice of the iPod generation, offering readers the widest variety of iPod-related original content available anywhere on the internet. Published daily, iPod Garage original content includes iPod and iTunes commentary, product reviews, humor pieces, news wrap-ups, and a weekly column devoted solely to music. The iPod Garage has the largest full-time staff of any iPod website.






[UPDATE] Jack has now updated his BLOG site - linking to Bill Palmer

I deleted a comment he made here due to pending legal matters.

have you noticed the stuff he has been stealing from other ipod sites? like the text of his new headquarters page, and the week in review podcast from ipodlounge.

who, Jack or Bill?

It's obvious that little of Bill's content is original - if any.

i was looking through his site (ipod garage) then his code and found that he uses ipod lounge and ipodlounge in his meta tags...

"The iPod Garage is one of the most prominent iPod-related sites on the planet," what a an outright lie...

Ha - great find ...

I usually check meta tags for the sites I "pick on" here - I forgot to do that; this time.
