Presidential Emergency Alerts Are Mandatory On My New Phone - UPDATEDSubmitted by libertyBoy on Sun, 02/13/2011 - 12:29
Apparently new Smart Phones are coming pre-installed with an Emergency Alert application which includes the following alert options:
- AMBER Alerts (Child Abduction Emergency)
- Extreme Alerts (Extreme Threat to Life and Property)
- Severe Alerts (Severe Threat to Life and Property)
- Presidential Alerts (Presidential Alerts are mandatory)
All options can be turned off except the last one. On top of that there is no way to uninstall this app.
I'm so happy the President will be there in my pocket to keep me safe when I need him most.
