    Tim Cook has been these last few days meeting with the high dome of Apple executives. The subject was the purchase of the social network Saloote, which will be released in August.

    After deciding to turn off Ping, Apple executives believe that investing in a new social network can help Apple to participate in the great market of social media that moves billions of dollars per year.

    The Saloote is centered on music and rumor has it will compete directly with Myspace and Youtube.

    These are just rumors, but they seem very real..

    Compete with YouTube? I doubt it.

    Apple, we already know social isn't your thing, spare us some pain.

    Hopefully, if it goes on the same path of Apple's quality products and services it will be incredible.
    Let's just wait and see...

    They should buy Friendica. With the horrible things I've been hearing about FaceBook and Google's info sharing, I think they need a lot more privacy in social networks.
