Secret Instagram hack lets you download all your friends’ disappearing photos

Last week, Instagram decided to become Snapchat by adding Stories, a feature that lets users post photos and videos that only last for 24 hours. Only, this is the internet, so everything lasts forever, whether you want it to or not.

Developer Alec Garcia made a Google Chrome extension that, as you’d expect, lets you view and download Stories from the web browser. Want to save everyone’s awful photos for posterity, or just want to Insta-creep from your laptop? Well, now you can.

Samsung Galaxy Note Selfie Ugly

Samsung thinks you’re ugly

Samsung thinks you’re ugly

Hey you, Samsung Galaxy-wielding selfie taker. You’re ugly. I’m serious. And it’s not my opinion either. It’s Samsung’s professional opinion about its customers who buy Galaxy phones in general. That means you, too.

You see, it appears that BY DEFAULT, the selfie camera has beautification features that make you look a lot better in pictures than you do in person. While that’s definitely a nice editing tool for photos, it’s also very politically incorrect. Disrespectful is one other word I’d use for it.

Instagram finally went ahead and ruined your feed

Instagram finally went ahead and ruined your feed

Earlier this year, Instagram said it was going to change the order in which photos and videos appeared in users’ feed in order to show them the moments they “will care about the most.” In other words, no more chronological feeds. The Instagram user base immediately (and unsurprisingly) imploded.

After countless tweets, Facebook posts and, yes, Instagram pictures denouncing the change, it seemed like the users had gotten their message across loud and clear.

Instagram went ahead and did it anyway.

The entire world is still tearing Instagram’s horrible new look apart

The entire world is still tearing Instagram’s horrible new look apart

Nobody likes change, and the tech community in particular seems to be especially averse to any sweeping or even minor changes made to software that they love.

So when Instagram yesterday released a completely redesigned iPhone app, alongside a brand new app icon, the blogosphere revolted in immediate disgust. While most people seem to have positive things to say about the actual app update, Instagram’s new app icon has generated no shortage of negative and, at times, hilarious feedback.

Instagram App Logo Update

A deep dive into the new Instagram logo everyone hates

A deep dive into the new Instagram logo everyone hates

Instagram released a major app update earlier this week for iPhone and Android that brought some user interface changes as well as a major icon design change. Unsurprisingly, Instagram fans freaked out when they saw the logo change. That’s certainly understandable; after so many years of pressing that tiny skeuomorphic image of a Polaroid camera, the new logo is jarring to say the least.

10-year-old who got $10,000 for hacking Instagram reveals his other feats

What were you doing when you were just 10 years old? Were you able to find any software bugs and win a boatload of cash for it? I sure wasn’t, but a Finnish boy named Jani recently told Facebook about an Instagram bug would let anyone delete comments inside the app. The social network rewarded him with $10,000 for his discovery.

It turns out that Jani is not only good with computers already, but he has a great sense of humor. More →
