Yesterday, AccelerateTO presented Mike Serbinis, founder of Kobo, and Jack Dorsey, founder of Square/Twitter. Both speakers came to the event and presented in a fireside chat style conversation, where the host talks to them in what’s supposed to be a casual and frank manner, with the goal of getting more of a personal, insider’s view into the guest’s mind. This sort of discussion is sometimes really well done, and will often press the speaker to talk about things they might be otherwise uncomfortable with. Sometimes this isn’t the case, and you can tell that the interviewer is just taking it as an opportunity to be buddy-buddy with the speaker. In this case it was Chris Albinson talking to Jack Dorsey about everything we’ve already read about a million times.

The app has all the features you expect of a solid Twitter client, including multiple account support, Active Frame support, and a muting system.

UPDATED: Somebody Needs to Fix Instagram Posts On BlackBerry Browsers

Comments

UPDATE: Nice! This has been fixed.

We’ve known about the Facebook acquisition of Instagram for some time now and yesterday, the company acknoledged the acqusiiton on its corporate news section with a post titled “Welcoming Instagram to Facebook“. In the post, Facebook says, “We also can’t wait to work with the talented Instagram team to improve the mobile experience.” Now, we’ve talked before on the site how the Instagram experience on Facebook for iOS is beautiful and lacking on BlackBerry, but what about the simple fact that the service is basically incompatible with the BlackBerry Browser? Instagram seems to have a beef with BlackBerry that makes their service look terrible on BlackBerry Browsers, but maybe now with Facebook behind them, they might take the small amount of effort required to make their service compatible with BlackBerry Browsers.
