Why Apple Connect failed to connect (video)

When Apple pulled the plug Thursday on its two-year-old social media service for music fans, it made a sound like “ping.”

From the 2:40 minute guided tour posted in April 2016 by Apple UK:

Find more artists to follow by tapping here. Then tap here. And then tap here. Let’s follow him. They’re cool. Oh, I love these guys. OK, that’s good. Let’s go back. Press here. Now hit here. And press Done…. If you like, you can always ask Siri for help.

Cue the video:

My take: I tried it once. I also once tried Ping, which Steve Jobs described as “sort of like Facebook and Twitter meet iTunes.”

    Turn the clock back and I’d have had Instagram go to Apple.
