Are you gonna Ping?

September 2nd, 2010 No Comments

 

So Apple’s going social with PING, which as I’m sure you’ve heard is Facebook meets Twitter for music.

Smart idea I suppose (they actually pay Jobs the big bucks).  And as long as I don’t have to update constantly I think I’ll enjoy being more dialed into the music scene.

I’ve been reading around the web to see what other people think.  Mashable’s“article” is more like a note saying, “Hey, Jobs launched this new thingy today” without any opinion.  Obviously Jason Calacanis is a fan.  Sam Diazon the other hand, not so much.  Sam makes some good points, but I don’t think he’s going to win this one.

UPDATE: iTunes 10, which you need to run Ping, is not available yet.  Hence no one knows how it actually works.  Ok, makes sense now.
