Much to the delight of many Instagram users, Facebook, who now owns Instagram, announced earlier today that Instagram is now able to support videos. Mark Zuckerberg did the honor of inviting Instagram founder Kevin Systrom onstage to talk about it.
Officially called Video on Instagram, it basically lets users capture videos up to 15 seconds via the Instagram camera app. Users simply need to tap the video camera icon to enter video mode, and 13 new filters are also available to enhance videos.
Even more interesting is a new feature called "Cinema" which will stablize videos, making them appear better and clearer. Video on Instagram is now avaiable on iOS and Android as an update. Make sure to get version 4 to enjoy the feature.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
