Figured, but it was an extremely frustrating experience as I couldn't access my own content with my phone and could only partially read the comment.

So much for mobile first. :)

Today, +Chrys Bader and I launched our new product, Secret, for iPhone. Tell me what you think. And there's much more to come.

Why can't I just copy/paste an image into a hangout/gchat? So silly.

I DON'T LIKE CHEERIOS.

Seriously.

Yes, they are o's, but someone please tell me how the hell they are cheery. In my entire life I've never had one cure a bad mood.

It's 2013, Cheerios, update your damn product!

It takes a very big person to do what you did.  You put Charlie's interests before yours, and most people are too selfish to be able to do that.

He is with family and will be loved and cherished, and someday you will have the time to give him the attention he deserves.

Bless you.

Indeed. It's all about plausible deniability.
 
My prediction: Secret will be huge with young people. Perhaps as big as Snapchat or bigger.

(And... if they are successful, people will try very hard to hack them to uncover who is saying what. Hopefully the team is more on top of this than Snapchat.)
