    Got the Amber Alert on my phone. Nice, handy piece of technology. Although I can’t say I’m ever near the Fairfield area for this particular case.

    I was watching TV and EAS took control of my TV stating that there is an Emergency Child Abduction Notice… but no other information. So at 11:15 PM what am I supposed to do, go out and look for cars with kids in them?

    This is even worse than the EAS notifications that I get 5 minutes after a thunderstorm starts telling me that there is a severe thunderstorm!

    Stop interrupting my TV with useless information.
