iTunes 10.0.1 Improves Ping, Target Selling iPad – Apple News

iPad, Social

Apple has been all over the news due to the new iPods, Ping among many other topics including the iPhone and iPad as well. Today, we’re covering the iTunes 10.0.1 Update which brings some changes to the way the software interacts with Apple’s social network Ping along with TriplePoint Client Target (a TriplePoint client) officially announcing that they will soon sell the iPad in stores nationwide.

iTunes 10.0.1 Update Improves Ping

Just yesterday, Apple dropped a new update for iTunes, version 10.0.1 for both PC and Mac. This new version brings mostly behind-the-scenes bug fixes, but also changes how your music is shared with Ping, which launched just a few weeks ago with the new iPods.

Now you may Like or Post about songs directly from your iTunes Library, instead of having to go directly to Ping first and doing all the leg work from there. Before, you could only post about songs that you had directly purchased from Apple but now you can post about any song in your library as long as its labeled correctly.

Also when playing a song, the Genius Sidebar has been replaced by a new Ping Sidebar that shows Ping updates from the artist and friends. You still have the option of closing this Sidebar if you wish.

Let’s hope Ping can just keep improving from here, and continue improving upon what could be a great service.

Target To Sell iPad in October

Target has announced that the iPad will go on sale in its stores beginning Sunday, October 3rd.

At the moment, you may only purchase an iPad from Best Buy or Apple but starting one week from today, Target announced it will carry all eight models of the iPad. That means you can pick up whichever model you wish directly at your local Target store.

More retailers picking up the iPad is a win for both the retailers and consumers involved. Let us know what you think of this move in the comments section below.
