Apple should officially shut down Ping – its social network for music, which it had launched back in 2010.
Ping allowed users to follow their favorite artists and friends to discover the music they’re downloading, listening to and talking about.
But Apple didn’t mention in the release notes whether the issue was fixed in iOS 4.3.1 even though there were rumors that iOS 4.3.1 might also improve the battery life of the iOS device.
Two of the worlds most influential people in the technology space met two weeks ago for dinner reports the Los Angeles Times.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook and Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple had a meeting recently followed by a post dinner stroll near Steve Jobs's Palo Alto home if we are to believe a tipster who spotted both of them together.
Apple has announced that over 1 million users have joined Ping, Apple’s new social network for music in the first 48 hours.
According to Apple, one-third of the users who had downloaded iTunes 10 have joined Ping.
This is despite some early problems with the new social network for music such as the Facebook Connect Integration trouble that Apple ran into with Facebook and a spam problem.
Ping, Apple’s new social network for music, has already seen a lot of rave reviews. The service is part of the latest version of iTunes and lets users connect with friends and artists to share and follow music tastes.
The social networking service already has a lot of music artists signing up to connect with their followers.
