Goodbye Ping, We Hardly New You

image from allthingsd.comTwo years to the month after Apple launched Ping - it's never-got-off-the-ground attempt to merge music with social - the company is shutting it down.  Ping's lack of a connection with Facebook, even as the later soared, virtually guarunteed this day would come.

“We tried Ping, and I think the customer voted and said ‘This isn’t something that I want to put a lot of energy into.’"

- Apple CEO Tim Cook to AllThingsDigital.
