The Ping is dead

Apple is planning on putting Ping out of its all-to-apparent misery, according to All Things D.

Since its launch in 2010, nearly everyone who uses iTunes has celebrated Ping as the most "woah, let's switch that shit right off"-y off all the social networks. It took the idea of Last.FM, and made it as horrible and avoidable as LinkedIn.

From the next major version of iTunes, you'll no longer have to pretend that Ping isn't there, begging you to activate it; Apple will be joining you in wishing they'd never gotten drunk and invented the bloody thing.

Still, at least there won't be any problems about how to shift user's data over to them when the service closes; I believe the entire Ping database consists of the words "Tim Cook is listening to the audiobook of Steve Jobs' biography" over and over again.
