As worldwide attention focuses on Apple's problem-riddled Maps app, another Apple miscue is about to be quietly put to rest.
This month, Apple's iTunes music social network -- Ping -- began displaying a sign notifying users that the network was no longer accepting new users and will shut down Sunday.
Ping's closing comes as little surprise. Apple plans to update iTunes next month and will integrate it with Facebook and Twitter, letting users "Like" and share songs, apps and other pieces of content.
In the end, Ping will be put to rest after just two years of existence, both of which were filled with absolute irrelevance.
