But Android fans will argue for hours of forums about how their phone gives them the freedom to bring a service to its knees.

"<>"? Pascal programmers != real programmers

Re: iPhone users <> Apple fanbois

Actually "<>" is used in far more places than just Pascal.

And *real* programmers would have to use the hex code for jump not equal specific to their chosen architecture.

Actually real programmers would say something to the effect of:

But of course it would vary dependent upon their platform.

You probably need a load, compare and jump not zero along the lines of 3E<byte1>FE<byte2>CA<address>

Judging by the (at the time of writing) downvote, there's one programmer still eating quiche.

Real programmers (who by definition, don't eat quiche) should be down voting that.

Real programmers don't use any high level language.

Real programmers avoid branches where possible, consider using predicates instead.

Apart from 'You didn't really think they wouldn't expand their app onto something as big as Android, did you?'

WTF?

Won't some hip Web 2.0 silicon roundabout social company give Ms Anna Leach a job already, so she can stop writing articles about shit she finds on Twitter?

"Ode To A Small Lump Of Green Putty I Found In My Armpit One Midsummer Morning" comes to mind when reading this "article".

Generally find those obsessed with photography to be general life losers with nothing interesting of their own to talk about, just other peoples fun and memories.

Sad really, good to see Android getting in on all the "arty" top of the face, hat on rakeish angle to hide your fat fun though.

As well all knew.

Instagram wasn't popular with iPhone owners because it was any good (both iPhone and Android have the vastly superior Pixel-o-matic), it was because it was exclusive to them.

All the iphone dickheads will now move onto something else to proclaim as the best thing since sliced bread, the only criteria is that it needs to be iOS exclusive....

Re: As well all knew.

Pixlr-o-matic isn't integrated with its own photo sharing social network, which is precisely what Instagram IS ALL ABOUT.

Do you even read anything other than your posts?

Re: As well all knew.

And with Android, the intents allow you to share application data with any web service you want.

Why would I want all my friends on G+ or Facebook to have to sign up to a ***ANOTHER** service just so they can view my hipster picture of downgraded and scratchy photos?

The answer is, I don't want them too, i'm not that self-centered...

Instagram - Why??!

Why turn your high quality camera into a box brownie?

Seriously - I just don't get it.

Unless you're covering up the poor quality of your Apple product's camera.

Oh....

Judging by the "photos" (mangled pieces of crap) I see posted every day, I envisage a generation of kids who'll be seriously clue-sticking their parents in a few years time as to why, oh why, oh why, etc. "Because it looks like an old print, dear". "An old WHAT?"

And you picked the Nexus because? If you want to pick a Android model with a iPhone4s beating camera, try and Xperia (Arc S, or the S), both of which are as good as, if not better in outside light, but MUCH better than an iPhone 4s in low light and indoor shots.

Poor quality camera? I suggest reading reviews instead showing your bias. facts are much more convincing than opinions. But then, you'd have nothing to say.

Re: Instagram - Why??!

Some people consider taking pictures "art". I consider it taking an f-ing picture that any idiot with a camera and no skill could do.

Same with "modern art" which consists of random splatters of paint that sell for thousands of dollars. There are few artists left, the rest of them are self centered idiots.
