Steve Jobs on Why Facebook Is Not Part of Apple's New Ping Music Social Network: “Onerous Terms” — Yesterday, at the Apple music event in San Francisco, I had a short chat with Apple CEO Steve Jobs as he strolled through the demo room for the media, just after he had announced various updates for the iPod, Apple TV and iTunes onstage.

If Apple Can't Deal With Facebook's “Onerous” Terms For Ping, Why Was It Using Facebook? — Update: We're hearing reports of people who had access to a Facebook Connect feature in Ping earlier, which didn't work, and has since been removed. So it looks like Apple really did pull Facebook support for Ping very late in the game.

Ping Averts Its Gaze: Apple's New Social Network Doesn't Really Want to Know Much About You — Steve Jobs says Ping is supposed to be a “social music discovery” service: You share your musical taste with friends and vice versa. But if you really want to share, you're going to find it harder than you think.
