    A million accounts, but I wander how many of them will actually be users.

    Very good point. A lot will probably just be people 'giving it a go'.

    I'm just surprised that only 1m of the 160m iTunes users decided to give it a go. Didn't they have more people queuing up to buy iPhone 4's?

    I also presume that your Apple Store account will be all the sign up you need for Ping, so it's just a case of selecting Ping and perhaps entering a few more preferences and you are signed up. I could be wrong though, I'm putting off updating to iTunes 10 because of the usual huge download.
