iTunes 10 now available for download, new Ping notes


Eight hours after announcing iTunes 10, Apple has released the latest version of its digital media management software for free download from and As discussed more fully in our earlier iTunes 10 story, the software adds a new Ping social networking feature, a Hybrid View of songs with album art, and a collection of small refinements to the user interface, as well as promising performance improvements. Grab it from now, or wait for either the iTunes 9 software (PC/Mac) or Mac OS X to let you know that the new version is available.

Update: iLounge’s Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Horwitz welcomes iLounge readers to follow him on Ping as he tests the service.

Update 2: Note that Ping-related e-mail follow requests from Apple contain a web link that is currently not working. Using the Ping > People screen from within the iTunes Store will let you acknowledge and add followers.

I wonder if there will be a software upgrade for the Original TV to support AirPlay Video and Photo support. US$99.00 isn’t a lot but it would still be a shame to see my old AppleTV be rendered unsupported overnight.

Ping?  Hmmm…. So THAT is what became of the old “” service!  And to think I had some 10,000 tracks uploaded on that service - now all “poof!” gone!

For some reason, after I installed iTunes10, at 1st start, I was able to see Ping. But then right after I clicked it, immediately I received an error message, and then Ping option that on the left just gone. What’s the problem I’m having?

Since iTunes is so vital to using an iPad, why isn’t iTunes 10 available for iPad? Or is it? How do I download the new version?

iTunes 10 does not work with Mac OS versions prior to 10.5. How in hell is it possible that Apple is giving iTunes10 to Windows XP and not for Macs with Tiger?
So no Ping nor pang nor ping pong, nothing at all, for Tiger user. So could it be a better idea to re-switch to PC?
