In case you've missed the news, about 4 hours ago there were multiple explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The latest reports say that there were 2 explosions leading to at least 2 deaths and around 70 injuries. The phone lines are getting jammed up in the area, so if you're looking for information on loved ones, it is best to text, or use the new person finder that Google has set up for this tragedy...

Fanboys have no life so they wanted the people to die. Curse the ones who disliked.

If I could reach through into my phone and out of yours...I'd seriously slap you upside the head for such an incompassionate comment.

Insensitive idiots, thats who.

This is far, far more important than fanboy battles. Kudos for Google for trying to help.

It is time like these that Facebook, Twitter, etc do come in handy.

Can't believe how simple minded people are. Equating this to a stupid cell phone flame war

Oh do shut up. Any other day you are the worst person here. Not acting like an unstable apple freak for one day won't change that or undo what happened

Differences apart, I dont think it is appropriate to comment about apple vs android vs windows at this time. My heart goes out to the victims and their families. RIP I hope they catch the f**ker who planted the bomb and let him rot in hell!
