William Shatner Google+ Flagged
“Kirk to Enterprise, I’ve been frozen by the hostile Google + Bots, contact our allies at Facebook and set phazers to kill. Fire when ready”
On Sunday William Shatner's Google + account was inexplicably frozen, and the former captain of the Enterprise took to his Twitter account to voice is annoyance. “Maybe I should say goodbye to Google +” mused the illustrious actor, musician, and poet.
In Google’s defense it’s + social media program is in beta testing, which is why a limited amount of invites went out in the first place.
For the computer novices out there, beta tests are a precursor to the final product release. This testing phase gives developers a glimpse into the programing and functionality. Oversights are inevitable when writing nine million lines of code. The fact that code is unforgiving and so much as an extra space or period can render the program inoperable hopefully will entice Mr. Shatner to cut the coders some slack and spare Google plus the “Wrath of Khan” treatment.
Come on Captain Kirk! You’re used to Windows and its multitude of program errors. Think of it like the “Kobayashi Maru” when faced with the no win scenario reprogram the computer to "work around" the flaw so you can win!
