iTunes Ping: reinventing the Iron Curtain

The new iTunes 10 includes Apple’s social network for music, Ping. It’s like a combination of Twitter, Facebook and, within iTunes. As we said earlier, we hate iTunes, and we’d recommend everyone to buy our music from our own webshop or Bandcamp, but we also know that iTunes has 160 million users worldwide, which would be kinda hard to ignore. Our music is available on iTunes, so let’s claim our artist profile on Ping, and see what we can do with it!
Well, we can’t. We’re from Hungary, and Eastern Europeans can’t access Ping. Austrians can. Thanks, Steve, for reinventing the Iron Curtain!
Just another example of why we’re still living in Parallel Worlds, 20 years after the Berlin Wall fell.
