    Moved to general software, can I ask the OP, if you are here in an official capacity, drop W1zzard the site owner and administrator a PM saying as such and he will personalise your title.

    If we break our Nexus 4 or if Chrome is causing our pc to crash every second, you get the idea.

    Why would we not want a google rep? Google has hardware(Nexus 4,7, 10) as well. Don't let this thread get out of hand. The only wrong the OP has done was posting in the wrong section, and that has been resolved.

    So if I have any questions do I go here or use your search engine? If I can get an answer from a real person I'd rather use you, but you need to be here 24/7 for all of my searching needs.

    Kthnx

    Mind you - Until he or she has gone through official channels and vetted by W1zzard they are still just some troll. so this rep might not be legit.

    Also as a rep from a big company like google I expected something a lot more then just "I'm a Representative of Google! Hello" For instance, letting us know why their here and what their aim or purpose is rather then just something that doesnt even fill a sentence.

    For instance, If i was a rep I would have gone to W1zzard first before posting, and i would have posted this....

    "Hi, Im <insertnamehere> and im a representative from google her to promote and support our products - So if you have any questions regarding our products please just ask"

    ^THAT and he posted in the wrong section. which makes me think that hes just some random troll. Google would not hire someone with that level of Intelligence to represent them if they cant at least post in the right forum No offence to the OP if you are genuine and i will retract my comment when you are fully vetted

    I agree Freedom, but let's give the user a chance to contact W1zzard, before we accuse them of something they may not be. Tatty already told the user what they need to do. I don't see any reason to keep pushing it along. :toast:

    A few of us will have to don the asshat if he was in fact a Google representative.

    Also, as far as offering support...

    Nexus 4 = made by LG
    Nexus 7 = made b Asus
    Nexus 10 = made by Samsung

    any kind of hardware support is going to be short of a headache. as the rep has to phone around to find someone within these companies who can deal with the issue.

    If you want to get technical about it. Its not so much supporting the product but delegating the work to others who will then do the work.

    And all this time I thought that mailman was caged to protect citizens.

    This is what I imagined:

    Personally I don't get all the hate toward Google. In my experience Gmail is better than Hotmail, Live Mail, and Chrome is about the best browser going. Granted I got the Google redirect bug two years straight when it got hacked over the holidays, but it was easy to fix and since it didn't happen this holiday season, it would appear they've dealt with it accordingly. They were also one of the first big corporations to go off the grid and power their facilities with the Bloom Box, which is also a more environmentally conscious form of energy.

    I doubt this is actually a Google rep though, for a few reasons. Such a person would likely know the correct forum to post in. He/she would also probably at least list the actual job title and time with the company in their profile. Lastly, a rep would try to make a good impression, vs posting a mysterious thread, then apparently ducking out without any responses.

    A real rep would probably also post from an IP address in the same state as the location he provides in his profile. ;)

    I LOL'd

    Now, keep it on topic. We are discussing the likelihood of this being a real Google rep.
    Have fun ... keep it clean.

    So the influence of the trolls that you get constantly from the Internet makes you automatically assume I'm fake. I sent W1zzard a message on personalizing my title.

    I don't know why you'd assume that when so many big corporations outsource their call centers anymore. Enough so to warrant producers making a movie and a TV show on the subject. It's possible the location mentioned is employer but he/she lives elsewhere. I know I wouldn't want to give out my actual city location, even if posting as a rep.

    Could be. Why not just say Google offices in (wherever)?

    as TPU'rs - we are a very inquisitive bunch.

    If we came across a body lying on the street we'd have no choice but to poke it with a stick.

    we are the proverbial 'how many TPU'rs does it take to change a light bulb??' joke - it takes one to do it and about 30 others to get into the science of it and it just happens that you were 'changing the light bulb' at the time and attracted quite a lot of attention.

    Im not calling you a troll. Im just saying we have a lot of trolls that claim to be someone they are not around these places so its best to keep ones guard up
