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."

I have heard of Instagram, but had no idea what it is. This article explains it perfectly and captures my sentiments exactly: Truly dreadful software. Just another way Facebook can make us cringe. That said, I certainly don't speak for all people, and if that many people love it, then that just makes me out-of-touch with the mainstream. However, as history unfolds, I am sure Facebook users will be given their just due and historians will put this time in its proper perspective... and yeah, we might look a little silly.
