We like to Technorati up companies that are on Gawker overlord Nick Denton’s Nixonesque ‘Enemy Hit List’ from time to time and see if anything’s slipped through the cracks. A juicy stream-of-conscious rant about AOL on some MySpace idiot’s blog can really shoot rainbows through those Slow Tuesday doldrums.
So courtesy of some MySpace idiot’s blog, a juicy stream-of-conscious rant about AOL. Specifically, their text message weather alert system, which sent said MySpace ranter 125 messages predicting five minutes worth of rain over the course of the day.
- so, when i got on mobile aim i signed up for some alerts…like amber alerts and weather alerts. i drive all night long and good to know these things…yeah iknow…why don’t i just look out the window or listen to the radio…fuck i don’t know…it was there so i wanted it….anyway….so today i received 125 test messages from aol telling me it was going to effin rain….and it only rained for five minutes during the time i got those messges…what the hell….okay…tell me once.. or twice whatever…but every 15 gosh damn minutes….bullshit…good thing i get a lot of them damn test messages…shit…
He means text messages, not test messages. And yes, we can see how that would be annoying. *Boop-de-doop!* You have one new message! AOL writes: “Hey! IT’S STILL RAINING.”
