Unrelated question...

Why are most postings in a BLACK font but every once in a while a post (with no thumbs down!) shows up in a light grey font ?

Apple, the company you love to hate!

seriously though, there are enough social networks around that it's time the herd started thinning a bit. File this up on the shelf with the apple newton and the pippin and call it a day.

Next up, MySpace.

I believe it's if the poster chose "negative" as the comment style, as I did with this one.

On topic:
It is funny to think of the small group of people who have relied on Ping as their social hub for years. I cant believe they kept it live this long

Off topic:
I hope samsung sues apple for their new nano

Awww, I didn't get to see future lawsuits regarding Apple's litigation aimed at the Estate of Mike Muuss for the trademark infringement of his Ping utility.

As far as I know, it means the user only recently created an account on Tom's. If you go to ekgjlgkj's user page you'll find that the join date was today.

@Freggo: is you don't sign in/register, it simply allows you to comment as "anonymous," with an identifying handle of your choice. Idk what you meant by the "no thumbs down" bit, so yeah.

The problem with a social network tied to iTunes is that only people that use iTunes are able to use it. Given that the majority of iTunes users are probably using it on Windows (and it barely works there) where people aren't likely to use it, the available user base is pretty small.

Yes, and directly following the win by Apple, their stock lost 25% as more people know know about Samsung and Samsung's stock rose by 25% making up for the money they lost to Apple because consumers are not stupid.

In other news Apple lost 25% of their profitability following the Lawsuit against Samsung....... I guess that fine did not mean much in the end.
