Apple’s big announcements earlier this week included the release of iTunes 10 with a new look and feel and the launch of Ping.
Ping, which should win the prize for least imaginative social network name ever, is Apple’s “answer” to social networking seemingly.
Want to join Ping? Then you need to use iTunes. Don’t have iTunes? Tough. Want to browse it online? Tough. Ping.com has nothing to do with it. And I don’t think you’ll find a ping.anything that is in anyway related to Apple’s new venture.
Personally I’ll be sticking to Last.fm!
Meanwhile Ping, apart from being well, boring and totally lacking in anything, is being attacked by spammers and scammers.
