Apple Should Facilitate Social, Not Build It

Tim Cook hit it right on the head last night in his comments on Ping.

We tried Ping, and the customer voted. (link)

Ping was meant to be Spotify but it was stuck to downloads and actionable-click sharing. Conversely, Spotify streams and shares music playlists seamlessly.

Apple should let Ping fade even if iTunes all of a sudden becomes part of Facebook’s frictionless sharing timeline and adopts the all access streaming model.

Apple simply doesn’t build social networks but it optimizes its operating system for easy social interaction. Cook hinted at a greater Facebook partnership in the iOS.

Facebook has hundreds of millions of customers. So, anyone that has an iPhone or iPad, we want them to have the best experience with Facebook on those platforms. (link)

Deeper Facebook integration into the iOS puts pressure on Facebook to differentiate its phone.

Besides Facebook, Cook didn’t give anything new away in his interview except the improved version of Siri. Undoubtedly, Siri will make it easier for customers to engage in social.

We can do anything

What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over. Get a post-bac or try writing for the first time. The notion that it’s too late to do anything is comical. It’s hilarious. We’re graduating college. We’re so young. We can’t, we MUST not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it’s all we have.

A Yale graduate’s last essay.

China turns its firewall into a points system

China is now running its microblogs on a point structure, rewarding points to good sentiment about the state and decreasing points for state criticism. Zero points equals a dead account.

By controlling the Internet, China is creating the type of closed environment that will lead to a rise in modern Chinese Muckrakers. And Ai Weiwei will be the face of the movement.

When Twitter broke a censorship deal with the Chinese government this January Weiwei responded “If Twitter Censors I’ll Leave.”

Just yesterday a Chinese man killed himself to protest his son’s death in Tiananmen Square while the former mayor of Beijing denied responsibility for the massacre.

China now has 1 billion mobile users, double than the US and Japan combined.  In the age of hackers and IP workarounds, dissent seems uncontrollable.

Undoubtedly, the Chinese people will get louder with China’s policy of Internet containment.
