iTunes terms refer to missing Ping sidebar

updated 03:05 pm EDT, Fri September 24, 2010

May be one of multiple abandoned features

The latest revision of terms for the iTunes Store may point to a missing feature, observers remark. "We have changed the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions to provide you notice that if you have opted in to the Ping social network and use the new Ping Sidebar," the text reads, "iTunes will send information to Apple about the content you select in your iTunes library in order to provide you with Ping personal recommendations." There is no identifiable sidebar for Ping, whether in iTunes 10 or iOS.

Apple could conceivably be referring to the Ping menu item on the left-hand side of iTunes 10, but it lacks any similarity to the Genius sidebar. A Ping sidebar could therefore be forthcoming, or something Apple abandoned before making the social network public. The company was forced to abandon Facebook integration after it failed to get consent.

    Isn't this the sidebar in iTunes 10?

    Seems obvious enough to me that it's the sidebar icon in iTunes 10.

    Bing Ping

    Is Ping related to Bing?
