Editor's note: This post is part of the Overheard on CNN.com series, a regular feature that examines interesting comments and thought-provoking conversations posted by the community.
South by Southwest (aka South By) is beginning again in Austin, Texas, and our readers are talking about several stories related to the annual tech, music and film festival. Are you going? Show us SXSW through your eyes.
The social photography app Instagram's days as an Apple-only thing are numbered, as the Android version is coming soon. The photo at the top of this post is an Instagram image. The story naturally reprised an ongoing tech feud.
kirkewilliam: "The reason why I don't use Android (besides having to reboot the phone several times a day because Android OS doesn't know how to handle memory issues) is that it takes a year for apps to come out for it. My iPhone works 'out of the box' when I buy. Android users have to root their phones to make it workable. Yes, I went from the SkyRocket to the 4S."
ReasonPolice: "My Android has never failed me. Two of my mother's iPhones quit working after less than two months of use and a friend I know with one recently had to switch because his iphone kept removing programs and files and shutting down. It just depends who you ask."
If you're reading this, it's probably safe to assume that you have at least some interest in commenting online in some way. We heard a lot of candid opinions and ideas to improve the commenting world from readers of the following story about a presentation by Gawker Media founder Nick Denton.
The most-liked comment blamed Americans' education level for the quality of many comments you see.
Apatheist: "The comment sections are only as good as the people commenting. Since most Americans are ignorant imbeciles, most comment sections are going to be flooded with a lot of ignorant and moronic comments."
Others talked about whether online anonymity is a good or bad thing.
EmmaInBalt: "One of the main problems is the anonymity of the comment section empowers people to express their vile innards without fear of repercussions. It basically gives voice to the side of people that they would otherwise try to hide."
hesaidwhat2: "However, that same anonymity also allows people who are oppressed to express themselves without repercussion. These days you can be Googled by employers and coworkers who may not like your point of view. Do you really agree with all the views of everyone you associate with?"
They walk among us.
Jason McCann: "I rely on comments to remind myself just how twisted society is. If you don't think America could easily go fully into barbarism, read a comments sections online. These are real people with real jobs, families, etc. These are their real thoughts. This is how these children behave when you simply remove consequence. It helps me remember how lost this civilization is. Everyday someone makes a conscious decision to attempt to destroy somebody else. Barbaric fools fighting over the waterhole. Except in the Internet World, there is no watering hole. You are fighting over an imaginary waterhole, and you are sacrificing your character and morality in the name of it. Yes, we know you feel justified. They all do."
But don't hate the trolls, hate the lame.
indifferent07: "There is far too much conversation hating on the trolls. Have we not grown in society to the point where we can embrace each other’s differences? I recently heard of an instance in which a young troll was so victimized by the negatively that they paid for the plastic surgery to appear more like an ogre. Stop the hate."
Speaking of comments, there were some good ones to be had in a post about Rainn Wilson.
Apatheist: "Why have faith? Faith is the absence of reason. Why would you blindly follow something when you can use reason to know what is probably true and what is probably not true?"
CDOPHX: "Apatheist, I think your question is exactly the kind of discussion he is promoting on his site. You asked an intelligent question in a reasonably respectful manner. Comment sections would be alot more valuable if everyone stuck to those principles."
One of today's most-viewed stories was also from South by Southwest.
Homeless people are participating in a project where they stand outside the convention center holding 4G hotspots that can be accessed with a donation.
thesparky1: "I like it. I always thought about accessing the various free wifi spots and then turning around reselling it. I mean with all the free wifi that's in Vegas, this one company figured out how to mine it. They have hotspots all over, especially in the cheap motel area just southeast of the MGM. This company offers free wifi for the first day then sells it to you after that. It allows the 10 or so motels that are served by the routers to put, "Free wifi" in their online descriptions and marquees. I think it would be neat to have a portable system that sucked up free wifi feeds and somehow resold it on the fly. People could log into the router and then get limited access. Then they would need to buy further access. If you try this with your own internet account, the service will figure it out and not only shut you down but demand all your proceeds. But if you use the free services to use as a backbone, they can't sue you."
But then again ...
passizle: "It all starts with hotspots ... and you end up with Soylent Green."
