After watching the 100% factually honest ABC made-for-TV-movie “Fatal Contact: Bird Flu in America,” I’m convinced the world is doomed. Its not a question of “if” but when, and thanks to a new service by UpSnap, I’ll know the exact right moment to run to my bomb/bird flu shelter.
UpSnap, a company based in Davidson, N.C., a startup company that provides search and entertainment on phones, has come up with what it claims to be the first bird flu alert service. As soon as bird flu appears in your state or region, you’ll receive a text message alerting you so you can climb into your bunker and hide.
But wait, there’s more ways to be afraid. The $3.99 per month service will also alert you about major terror incidents, travel advisories, public health warnings and natural disaster updates. The information comes from the Homeland Security Department, the Centers for Disease Control, FEMA, the FBI and others.
As well as emergency updates, you will receive a weekly voice summary of major threats.
So I’ve sold all of my Google stock to fund the building of an underground bunker, complete with a T1 connection so that I can still receive updates from UpSnap and post to Medgadget.com.
