SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: June 13, 2012

Happy Wednesday, everyone. Is there ever really a reason to celebrate Wednesday? Probably not, unless it's your birthday, in which case, happy birthday! Even if it's not, though, we have presents for you - presents in the form of masterfully wrapped technology news bites. Let's start with this - Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 nixed from pre-orders. That's a bit of a downer, but not as much as this one - Zynga usage declines, stock drops to record low. And yet another blow to a major compani - Apple's USA Galaxy S III ban denied by judge.

Featured: Okay, so far today's wrap-up has been rather depressing. A lot of unfortunate news for the tech world today, but luckily there is a featured article on the site to lift your spirits - especially if you happen to own an Android phone and love Xbox Live. Yep, the My Xbox Live app has launched on Android - My Xbox Live official for Android; we go hands-on.

Apple, Skype, & Nintendo: And in our continuing coverage of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, here's a bit of news that will either make you sad or say, "Wait, what's that?" Apple to shutter Ping in next iTunes update. And if you like advancements in online advertising (who doesn't?) here's something for you - Skype introduced conversation ads on audio-only calls. And finally, some gaming news - Nintendo working on 3DS successor.
