I would like to report a kidnapping, AndroidTapp Google+ page
Jul 29, 2011 10:36 AM –
It happened so fast… one second I was on it and the next… it was gone! I can’t even access it via the Google+ Android app either, someone kidnapped AndroidTapp’s Google+ page and they only left behind this note… so I called the authorities.
AndroidTapp Google Plus Ransom Note
Agent: Claim down sir… any suspects come to mind?
Me: Well, when I saw the note, I thought it was those Zombies from Plants vs Zombies because my garden kept pulverizing their invasion. Yet this note was typed and not of their signature.
The phone rings, before I picked it up the agent’s techno team scrabbled to setup call recording and tracking gizmos.
Me: Hey, there are a few apps that can help with this, at least for call recording, like Bully Block or Record My Call, would these help?
I answer the phone…
Caller: “Hello… Hi, I was calling because I live down the street from you and your daughter come to my house today and she kicked my dog… now my dog needs operation. Why did she do it?!?”
False alarm, it’s one of my buddies trying to prank me with PrankDial. Yet the phone rings again, the techie team preps and I answer.
Kidnapper: (in Darth Vader-like deep voice… probably using Ultra Voice Changer) We have your Google+ page and we want one million dollars and a Galaxy S2 phone if you want it back! Bring unmarked bills and no cops to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to make the exchange.
Me: Omg! Where am I going to get a Galaxy S phone in the U.S.?
Agent: Sir claim down, we can help you in this situation. We can give you some phony money to make the exchange at the drop point. When you give the kidnappers the Galaxy S2 phone, we can use any number of the best apps to track & find the phone and goons to their lair then arrest them!
Me: But… what about my Google+ page?
Agent: I’m sorry sir, we’ve seen this going on lately…. Why with Mashable, Ford, Sesame Street and even your friends at Android and Me have falling victim to these fiends… we’re working hard to stop this madness. You can help us help you by +1ing this post so the culprits hear your outcry- that quality review content from the world’s best needs a place to be socially shared. Can you do that sir? Can you get your friends to +1 too?
My thoughts are racing, I guess I have to trust the agent, wondering if in the meantime I should even suggest to my readers and friends to add the expert team to their circles since their Google+ links are on their profile pages. What should I do?!?
To Be Continued…
This post was meant in humor to explain Google removing our Google+ account as it is technically a business page currently unsupported by the new social platform and not intended to offend anyone. Hope you enjoyed the recommended Android apps suggested too.
