R.I.P. iTunes’ Ping 2010-2012
Goodbye, Ping. We’d miss you, but we never really used you in the first place.

It’s October 1, which doesn’t just mean that we’re gearing up for another round of rumors about an alleged iPad mini—it also means Apple’s attempt at creating its own social network has now been laid to rest. Ping, first introduced in September of 2010 as part of iTunes, has been officially shut down as of Monday, though parts of it will live on when Apple releases the next major version of iTunes later this month.
