iTunes 10

Apple introduced a new version of iTunes – iTunes 10 at today’s special event along with the launch of the new iPod models and Apple TV.

iTunes 10 comes with an all new logo, Apple has ditched the CD in the new logo.

One of the major features introduced in the new version of iTunes is Ping, Apple’s social network for music.

iTunes Ping allows you to follow your favorite artists and friends just like Twitter but to discover the music they’re downloading, listening to and talking about.

Steve Jobs said:

“iTunes is the number one music community in the world, with over 160 million iTunes users in 23 countries, and now we’re adding social networking with Ping. With Ping you can follow your favorite artists and friends and join a worldwide conversation with music’s most passionate fans.”

Ping will also be accessible from the iPhone and iPod Touch with the iOS 4.1 update.

Here are some screenshots of iTunes Ping:

Apple has also improved the syncing process in iTunes 10.

The new version of iTunes also includes support for AirPlay, a new version of AirTunes, which will allow you to stream music, video, and pictures around the house to devices that support AirPlay wireless technology.

You can download iTunes 10 now from the download page.

    I started looking at Ping, but it seems like it is too iTunes centric to be of much general interest. The artists they recommend don’t make any sense for me. Seems more like they are just recommending the artists they launched the service with. It doesn’t seem like I can even become a fan of “Depeche Mode” on the service right now, let alone any of the electronic artists I would really like to follow.

    As a way to advertise iTunes on FaceBook it is fine, but I don’t generally like to connect things up like that.
