ping stories

 
That didn't take long. We're on day two of Apple's Ping and it's already showing the telltale signs of a social network being dirtied up. It doesn't take long for prospectors to spot a potential gold mine, and by "prospectors," of course, I mean no good dirty spammers.
 
Call me a cynic, but I can't imagine that Apple's new, ambitious social network Ping is going to take off. Built into iTunes and the iTunes Store iPhone app, it's designed to let you share what music you're enjoying with your friends while also following your favorite musicians.
