iTunes 10.0.1 brought with it a Ping drop-down menu. Which some people liked! But if Ping's not your thing, here's how you get rid of that drop-down menu altogether.

From the Mac Observer:



1. Quit iTunes.
2. Launch the Terminal app in /Applications/Utilities
3. Enter this command, then press return: defaults write hide-ping-dropdown -bool TRUE
4. Quit the Terminal app.
5. Relaunch iTunes.

And you're home free! To revert back, enter the same command but replace TRUE with FALSE.

So long, Ping! I never really gave you a chance. [Mac Observer via TUAW]
