Internet & Networking I hate when I have to report on stuff I just don't care about. However, it's big news, because for some reason I'm not particularly privy to, this photosharing service is more popular than god. Yes, Facebook has acquired Instagram. Update: "At the end of the day, that's what Instagram filters are: a crutch, a misguided replacement for a properly composed shot and a decent sensor."

So what, you mean both Apple AND Android fanboys are elitist pricks? Who woulda thunk it? Trust me, I got some 'dyed-in-the-wool' Fandroids in my Google+ circles, and the amount of anti-Apple rhetoric that gets posted on a daily basis is staggering. They refer to Apple users as morons and brainwashed sheeple. So I think the 'class mentality' goes both ways.

For what it's worth, I am an Apple AND Android user, so I love everyone ;) hehe

Do you think it's 50/50 or maybe more from the iphone community?

Its funny because they're making fun of other people, when they're the ones making bad pictures with a camera phone...

You can only make fun of any instagram users, if you have a serious camera that doesn't allow you to make phone calls on it, and wasn't purchased at urban outfitters.
