    another market to hit... :cool:


    Apple's latest version of iTunes, iTunes 10, will include not only a new logo and new layout, but also Apple's own social network for music, "Ping."

    "It's like Twitter and Facebook meet iTunes," Apple CEO Steve Jobs said during the press conference.

    Mashable explains Ping's features:

    Ping allows users to follow others, just like Twitter. You can follow artists or your friends to find out what they're listening or what they're creating. It has custom song and album charts, a news feed, 17,000+ concert listings, and is available to 160 million iTunes users.

    Ping will be available not only for iTunes on the desktop, but for iPhone and iPod touch as well. iTunes 10, which is necessary to access Ping, is already available for download.

    Zune offers a similar service. Just another way for apple elitist to see how great they are and how great other apple elitist are.

    so.. my opinion. Apple is a giant right ? sees something good whit, somethingsuccessful so why not copycat and grow the idea caz' apple has loads of many and can make that service better/faster etc.. but they have a perfect blue print for free.

    that's everything about web2.0 , since facebook and twitter can't claim they owe the idea of their business ... everyone with couple of millions on their pocket can hit same market's :) . Few years back none give a shize about twitter then spammers found a way to milk some penny from them since they started to advertise so aggressive .... same will happens with meme for example ... if yahoo decide to advertise their service more ... :) everything is about sharing :p
