Rate Instagram!

Instagram is a great iPhone app that is so much more than the features it offers. If you have an iPhone, you should get it and, if you love it, write a review.

I wrote one a while back from the prompt given within the app, so I have been perplexed and a little annoyed by the continual prompt given each time I use the app. I know, I can (and will) just say “No, Thanks” and it will stop bugging me, but that’s not the point. I wrote a review already. Hello? Stop bugging me!

Anyway, it is a great app (I wrote a very good really short but good review). If you love it, I hope you write one too. I just hope they fix this nag screen so that it “knows” when you’ve submitted a review. It takes away from the experience.

UPDATE: Because of my prior 2 line review, I just wrote something a little more thoughtful… NOW STOP BUGGING ME!

Disqus was developed to authenticate the commenter. So I don’t think it will change into a common format for spamming.

I do get spam comments on Disqus but they’re usually already gone by the time I go to delete them. I am impressed with this!

Pinboard: A Social Bookmarking Tool That Literally Archives Your Web

Pinboard, a minimalist social bookmarking service by Maciej Ceglowski and Peter Gadjokov (one of the co-founders of delicious), tries to solve this problem. Their service that launched in late 2009 allows you to automatically store a copy of all the pages that you bookmark. Even if the original site goes offline, or the page is removed, you can still find the information in your Pinboard’s cache. The service, priced $25 per year, is not dirt cheap, but can be quite useful at times; moreover, whatever amount you paid to subscribe to Pinboard in the first place, is deducted from the first payment (there is a one-time subscription fee, depending on the current number of users; this fee is now around $6 and allows Pinboard to remain ad-free).
