Every other startup out there is trying to become the new big thing in email, but what we get more often than not is a bunch of half-baked tweaks that sound nice on paper but don't really do all that much to change the experience. Ping, however, actually is probably unlike any other email client you've used before.
Ping is going to officially die on September 30th, according to 9to5Mac. The question is was Ping ever even alive?
In Steve Jobs' two stints at Apple, the company made some great products. Their most amazing products. But no one's perfect. Not even Steve Jobs. And Apple produced a few pieces of total crap during his reign. Here're the worst.
Firefighters have the coolest job. They get to play with fire each day and don't get in any trouble for doing so. Of all the firefighting jobs out there, the position of burn boss is by far the best.
Apple just updated the iTunes app on the iPad and it adds...Ping! It was a backend update so there's no new download necessary. Just hit up the new Ping tab on the iTunes app to get your social music-ing on. *cricket*
Holy dinner date! Two of tech's heaviest heavyweights, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg, had supper together two weeks ago and talked about—well, we don't exactly know, but you can be sure it was probably more about Ping than poking.

You know those couples in iPhone ads, torn apart by distance and forced into FaceTiming each night? This Ping lamp is for them. It splits in two, and communicates over Wi-Fi so you always know when someone's thinking of you.
Like many people, I activated Ping when Apple revealed it earlier this month, and then like many people I stopped using it. Where's the, um, social? Why is it saying I like all these Britney Spears remixes? Et cetera.
iTunes 10 is all about Ping, Apple's new music social network. Like Twitter, you can follow and be followed. You can be public about it or be private (jerk). Captain Jobs is hoping artists will be public.
Ping! Pong! These ping pong paddles have integrated LEDs that display PING or PONG in mid-air when a player hits the ball. It's like a futuristic version of those unforgettable Adam West Batman fight scenes. Kapow!
PingChat! (formerly known as Ping!) has received an overhaul. The iPhone messaging app now has a better looking user interface, allows for group chats, can send images and videos, and is ad-free. Not too shabby.
