RT @mediaguardian: As Apple cans Ping, five other notable deaths in the social media world http://t.co/egBdcG7o
"Ping will no longer be available as of September 30. Thank you for your interest in Ping." haha jammer Apple maar niemand gaf er iets om
Ping timed out. Apple's attempt at a music-based social network will close down Sept. 30. http://t.co/nHZnlqM2
Twitter has agreed to cough up about three months worth of tweets to a judge handling the case of an Occupy Wall Street protester. The move by the social network site had been closely watched -- as civil liberties observers wanted to see how much access law enforcement agencies would have to material posted online. Twitter had been threatened with big fines if it didn't comply with a New York judge's order to turn over the records. But the judge says the records will be sealed until after a September 21 hearing that challenged his ruling on the tweets. Prosecutors in Manhattan say the tweets could show whether the protester knew of the police orders he's charged with ignoring during an October protest at the Brooklyn Bridge.
Apple is shuttering failed social music network Ping on September 30th http://t.co/59Twip4k
Haven't placed an online order for your new iPhone 5? Might want to head for a store and get in line on Friday to try to get one -- because Apple is now delaying the delivery for the product. At first the delivery time was for Friday -- when the phone hits stores. But within four hours after online pre-orders started, delivery times climbed to two weeks. All this suggests demand for the phone may be even greater than first thought.
It's something any NFL team would love -- having a game official who's a fan of your club calling the game. But it's not something the NFL finds cool -- especially while they are using replacement officials. The league has removed an official from the New Orleans Saints game against the Carolina Panthers -- because it turns out he's a Saints fan. The league says it heard about the ref from phone calls and emails about the official. A search of his Facebook page showed him in Saints gear -- and tailgating at a preseason game.
