First impressions of Ping

iTunes now includes this social network (supposedly) thingy called Ping. I must say, it’s algorithms have a long way to go. Now I’m assuming they know what music I have in my library, on both my computers with iTunes on them. If not, what’s the point. But then, here are the first 6 names on the “Artists we Recommend You Follow” list:

  • 50 Cent
  • Daddy Yankee
  • Juanes
  • Jimmy Eat World
  • Keith Urban
  • Lloyd Banks

Truth is, I’ve heard music from one of those in the last forever (that would be Juanes), and that’s because I was at Andrea’s place on the weekend and we had the radio on. On page three Nine Inch Nails showed up (Trent Reznor has always been an Apple poster boy), but aside from that it’s pretty much crap – even I’ll stick to MySpace to check when bands are playing.
