With the new iPod, I can finally check out all these goddam apps everyone else I know has been using. One of them is Instagram, a social photo-sharing app where you can take pictures and then tweak them with various cheesy faux-artsy filters in various shades of hipster brown and B&W. I took pictures of all the animals with it. The filters feel like cheating to me (pretty much everything looks cool when you overlay a kitschy "vintage" filter on it). But I admit they are handy at covering up flaws in the iPod Touch's spotty camera quality, which is good enough for sharing online.
