A bit more humor on Facebook's purchase of Instagram

And what do tech-hipsters do when they have angst? Use humor of course! We’ve already seen The Daily Show’s take on the Instagram buyout, but the comic The Joy of Tech over at AllThingsD seems to have perfectly captured some of these concerns – and unlike many of the humor videos we come across, we think the comic captures a legitimate concern shared by users of Instagram.
Without further ado:

I think that this purchase is absurd. 1 billion? I know they have the money and that Instagram is successful, but can someone explain me?

They aren't just buying the app they want everyone's data... that's my take on it.

Several industry analysts have reasoned that it's because Facebook wants to keep it out of the hands of competitors such as Twitter. Is it worth $1 billion by itself? Probably not. Is it worth $1 billion to keep it out of the hands of a company that could monetize it? Maybe. It seems Facebook thought so.
