Michael Margolis on Twitter:
Wait… This Nexus Q does far less than AppleTV, requires an Android device to use, is much larger, and is 3x the price?
See what I mean?

The Nexux 7 is a 7″ tablet from Google.
Naturally it runs Android but it runs a version of Android that no one else has yet and, if Android’s track-record stays intact, not many older Android-powered devices will ever run.
I’m skeptical only because I’ve never seen an Android device that I’ve liked. But who knows?
Of course, Marco bought one.

Warning: The following may contain some strong language. I’ve tried to clean up the tweets a bit though.
Last night, after a whirlwind trip to New York City on business and just before crashing like a rocket into bed, I pulled up Tweetbot to see what was going on the in world. It turns out Instagram for Android came out and some people were going a little crazy.
I thought some of the tweets were pretty funny so I thought I’d respond to them here. Here are my responses in no particular order.
If u ain’t following me on instagram ya mama **** **** n u ***
— Courtney Hooper (@SelfMade_Smasha) April 4, 2012
Fair enough. I’m so glad people that have Android devices can now use Instagram.
BTW, on Instagram it’s not a place where you constantly post pictures of yourself without a hashtag! #getwithit
— Victoria Ann Valdez (@victoriaannv) April 4, 2012
Yes, Victoria, the most important parts about Instagram are photos of yourself and hashtags. You’ve got it all figured out.
So now whats so great about the iphone? Yall exclusive temple run and instagram is now wit android.
— Marissa Na’Sha (@SweetAs_Honeey) April 4, 2012
You know, back in 2007 when I bought the first iPhone I thought to myself: “Why am I buying this phone? It doesn’t have Temple Run or Instagram on it.”
House phones bouta come out wit one next month #instagram
— Rodney(@RodneyRaJaan) April 4, 2012
The next logical step for Instagram is to work on house phones, yes. I realize Rodney was being sarcastic. And I appreciate his snarkiness. Good on ya Rodney.
I’m glad @instagram finally came to Android, so I can stop using my iPod for it (apple cams suck!!!!) but wtf is up with “image too small?”
— Ashlee Pahmiyer (@ZombieAshlee) April 4, 2012
Oh Ashlee, you make this too easy. So, Apple’s cameras suck but your Android device takes a photo so small that Instagram can not use it? Got it.
Instagram ain’t nun but a way to cover up all dem bumps on ya face to make it look like ya face all clear, ***** plzzzz
— Yung Trill (@YungTrillOG) April 4, 2012
Yung is onto something here. Girls, be sure to use Instagram’s bokeh effect tool to “cover up all dem bumps on ya face”.
Keep tweet grams off of instagram. It’s annoying as **** and we already have 2 social networks that tell us about things we don’t care about
— Alexandra Juarez (@alexxxjuarez) April 4, 2012
As she tweets about things we don’t care about on a social network that tells us things we don’t care about.
Just got instagram and I have no idea how to use it
— Timmy Mucklow (@TimmysToNice) April 4, 2012
Hey Timmy, THE BIG YELLOW ONES THE SUN!
Am I the only one who doesn’t know how to work instagram?!
— Mollie Gillman (@ayomollieee) April 4, 2012
Hey Mollie, meet Timmy, and THE BIG YELLOW ONES THE SUN!
Now Instagram is released for android, kinda make it less exclusive photo app.
— Lukas Ardian (@LukasArdian) April 4, 2012
Something being less exclusive is like something being more unique. But you knew that right?
dont know how to work this instagram **** im finna delete it
— Savage Los (@losbaabyy) April 4, 2012
The best part about “Savage”‘s tweet is that he somehow managed to type this on a computer on the web. The shift and apostrophe keys are notoriously hard to find on computer keyboards.
Dang all these droid followers on instagram…..this is dang near Facebook ???? Ewwww
— Christin (@ChrisNikole) April 4, 2012
Exactly the same as Facebook. Zuckerberg is probably furious.
I just made an Instagram account only for the effects. I could care less about posting them, that’s what Twitter is for…
— Chet Seeram (@chetseeram) April 4, 2012
Twitter was definitely built specifically for the purpose of sharing photos, yes. Actually, Chet, while I’m responding to you, you may want to check out my post Instagram is a network, not a camera.
Bunch ah hood *** ****** adding me on instagram . . . Lol uh oh #AndroidSeason
— ?Gøld?£™ (@YellowBoneRyda) April 4, 2012
These New Instagram ******* thuggin it…No profile pics and ****……????????????????????
— LiMar Tuttle (@LiMarLK) April 4, 2012
Totally gonna sound like a ***** but instagram not so cool anymore
— Patty Rudawski (@Pattyatty) April 4, 2012
I agree Patty. It went from like 25,000,0000 people using it to like 30,000,000 people using it. Totally not cool anymore.
All these useless android users on instagram… Remainder small black burry will have too
— CaroLyna (@CallMeChoKolate) April 4, 2012
Wow. “Useless Android users” Carolyna? You sent this tweet using an iPhone. An iPhone has spell check. And you chose to type in “Remainder” instead of remember and you called a Blackberry a “black burry”. Maybe you need an Android-powered phone?
iPhone’s words of wisdom to the New Android Instagram users: “You dumb babies!”
— jessie maria (@allThtJass) April 4, 2012
Instagram Gonna be a flop like temple run cause androids got it
— AsierraC?? (@Naturally_Lexie) April 4, 2012
You called it Asierra. Instagram is dead in the water.

Interesting niche that I know many would love to see filled by Foursquare et al. Forecast is a mobile application (iOS/Android currently) that lets you tell your friends where you will be and when you’ll get there. Then, when you arrive, you can quickly check into wherever you are via Foursquare.
