Beware of fake Instagram app that contains malware

April 19, 2012

Instagram has been in the news a lot recently. It launched on Android only a few weeks ago and enjoyed over 1 million downloads on its first day on Google Play. Then Facebook decided to buy the 13 person company for $1 billion! Naturally, the Facebook purchase rocketed the app to even greater popularity with the  acquisition being covered by the mainstream media.

When a cyber criminal sees something popular, especially on a mobile device, it becomes a very tempting target and Instagram has been no different. A Russian group has created a fake Instagram web site which offers downloads of the app directly from the site (rather than from Google Play) and, in doing so, is [...]

Video: Jon Stewart pokes fun at Google Glass and Instagram

April 16, 2012

If you can dream it, Google can probably make it. And if you’re lucky, it’ll spawn countless parodies on YouTube and end up on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show.  We’re talking about Google Glass and Instagram, two sizzling topics of last week that have somewhat irked the host, all in jest, of course.

In his usual irreverent style, Jon Stewart wonders about the absurdity of Google Glass and the recent acquisition of Instagram by Facebook.  Does the comedian extraordinaire think that Google is “the world’s biggest database of people whizzing in public?” Did he really say that Instagram ruins pictures? Why would Facebook pay $1 billion for that? And where does a time machine [...]

Instagram for Android updated (again), now supporting the HTC One X

April 11, 2012

Only eight days have passed since Instagram for Android has been made available for download on Google Play, but so much has happened over this week. The Android app has already been downloaded more than five million times and two updates have made their way to the Play Store. Oh, and I almost forgot – Facebook will pay one billion dollars to acquire Instagram.

I don’t know about you, but I’d call that a pretty darn good week. And even though some might rest on their laurels after such a wild ride, enjoy the success, and pop a different champagne bottle every half an hour, the people behind Instagram’s success are once again showing us they are in this [...]

Facebook agrees to buy Instagram for $1Billion Dollars [Breaking News]

April 9, 2012

A few days ago we had some articles on Instagram, the immensely popular photo-editing and sharing application. It gained unbelievable momentum on iOS, and was released to Android late last month.

Facebook’s owner Mark Zuckerberg announced their planned acquisition of the application for One Billion dollars ($1,000,000,000) on his public Timeline. This compensation is understood to be a mixture of Cash and Stock.

It seems that Instagram will continue to be built as a separate entity to Facebook, but the services will start to have increasing inter-network ties to one another.

An important point to note in the letter is:

“We think the [...]

March 12, 2012

Instagram, the insanely popular photo filtering & sharing app designated by Apple as the “iOS App of the year 2011” will soon also be available on Android smartphones, according to an announcement made at South by Southwest on Sunday by Instagram Co-Founder Kevin Systrom.

According to Systrom: “In some ways, it’s better than our iOS app. It’s crazy”. I honestly believe (and hope) that there won’t be any big differences between the iOS and the Android versions of the app, but I guess we’ll have to wait for Instagram to be released on Android to know for sure. Although no release date was announced for Instagram on Android, according to Systrom, the App is currently in its [...]
