The business and tech blog, Silicon Alley Insider, has sited Ping as being the sixth biggest tech flop of the year and site it for utterly failing to gain traction.
As my previous posts have indicated, post-launch communications to independent musicians was mishandled, the integration with Twitter is lame, no one can really use it other than to promote music sales as is is not truly social and open, etc.
It isn’t like Apple to continue to support lame initiatives and products, so my hope is still that they might get it all together. But the clock is ticking. Loudly. I still hold out some hope they will pull it together on 2011.
Update December 13, 2010 – I was asked to condense all my tribulations with Apple and Ping into one long article that is now posted on Michael Brandvold’s great Music Marketing site, here.
