Apple Ping would have been a great thing for Apple to have done about 3-4 years ago, but at this point, the Social Networking thing has pretty much played itself out, picked its winners, and we've all moved on. Apple went to all the trouble to make a deal with a golf company, and all we got was a third rate social network? First of all, in what is probably just a temporary setback, Ping is choked with spam, but more importantly, it's just a sucky social network.

"the Social Networking thing has pretty much played itself out, picked its winners, and we've all moved on"

David Adams must either be really young or really dumb, judging from statements like that.

When Google came along, search had pretty much played itself out, picked its winners, and we had all moved on. Or so we thought (who cares about Excite these days).

Social networking has just begun, and you must be pretty dense to think that new directions and creative combinations or new business ideas won't be able to complete change the landscape.

All it takes is a really good idea that people like, a bit of luck and superb timing.

For the times, they are a-changing.
