So I don't really get the whole idea behind Ping, and I'm not all that interested in learning. Unfortunately, Apple has put little icons for it next to every song in my library, similar to the little iTunes store icon that used to be present by default. I'm not talking about the quick links on the locations bar within iTunes, but next to the song names when they're selected. Does anybody know how I can get rid of these? I find them to be very distracting.

If it helps, here is how to remove the iTunes store icons. I'm guessing it will be something very similar, but I didn't want to try guessing and I can't find anything via Google.

Get them to allow you to downgrade. You should be allowed under the licensing agreement you have with Microsoft. I won't use Outlook 2007.
