Malware-infected download knocks last trace of hipster gloss from Instagram

If you're one of those dedicated Instagram users who were devastated when the photo-smearing software vendor opened the gate to barbarians by releasing a version of the app for Android, then had to deal with the acquisition of both by Facebook (home base for barbarians), let me offer my condolences.

It's just not going to be the same faux-nostalgic, style-overdosed, unviewably artistic,Kodachromed, almost-ironic, rose-colored-glasses-tinted image of a world any more.

You knew it would happen. Walled gardens like the Instagram community, which contained only 30 million aestheticians before being pimped to Android users April 3, can't be protected forever.
