Shaquille O’Neal — Yeah, I Got That Amber Alert Last Night

Exclusive 080613_shaq_launch
If you live in California, we all did the same thing last night — we wondered, “Who the hell sent me this Amber Alert on my cell phone … and how can I turn it off”

It happened at 10:54 pm — cell phones across the state started buzzing, sending people (especially sleeping people) scrambling to find out which app was responsible for the late night push notification.

Turns out, there”s an Amber Alert setting in “notification” section of your iPhone — that most people didn”t know about until last night … when everyone from Shaquille O”Neal to Mike Epps to our camera guys got the message.


$(function() $(“#poll-990-f4ec9e902a3ec9d29df61674274c69d2 div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(”, unchecked: “url(”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “990-f4ec9e902a3ec9d29df61674274c69d2”, ); });

So, we gotta ask — when your phone went off last night …
