TechCrunch Photos Google Froyo Statue, Gets Stopped by Security

OK, this story is just too damn funny to not write about.  While TechCrunch was breaking the news on their blog this morning that Android 2.2 would include the ability to tether and use your phone as a wifi hotspot, they were also sending an employee over to the Google campus for a photo session.  There was a rumor flying around that the new Froyo statue had arrived and the pictures of this beast needed to be released to the world!

Of course, Google employees stormed outside and threatened to call security and the photoshoot abruptly came to an end.  Still, they captured a few pics of the new Froyo statue…

What’s makes this even more hilarious is the fact that some random guy made this video showing off the statue on Youtube…

  • I think that will take some time. Who wants to wait when Flash player is coming with Froyo?

  • I think the Google Logo is more enough.Google should use single logo as they have now.Froyo statue is so fine & representing Google very well but no need..

  • At what point does the Google compound run out of space to hold a giant dessert for every 4 month point update of Android

  • This was fun but I don’t know if would encourage this type of activity if it’s going to cause the Google folks to raise to techcrunch threat level ORANGE. Unless they respond by setting up some android powered security system.

  • I put all my music onto the on-board memory of my incredible.The stock htc browser finds them and recognizes them as music, but no other music player does.

  • If they mess with tethering in 2.2, I will stick with my rooted 2.1 with free tethering until 2.2 is rooted, and verizon can eat me. They shouldn’t limit our phones capability because they want to be douchebags

  • I hope Verizon doesn’t end up being douche bags by disabling tethering on the Motorola Droid or by charging for it in the 1st place

  • I wonder if the next OS name will go the way of the fabled Cookie Monster-to-Veggie Monster name change. Maybe fruit instead? I dunno. BanAnadroid has a ring to it.

  • The incredible has tons of stock apps that I really do not, and I would really like to get rid of them. Is there any way to uninstall stock htc apps.

  • Well, this froyo statue is also fine & representing Google very well, but I think the Google Logo is more enough. Google should use single logo as they have now.

  • This Froyo statue is the sign of Google and its a great designed by Google employees..

    To kellex or anyone else that can answer, I have 2 qustions about my incredible.
    1) I put all my music onto the on-board memory of my incredible (as apposed to the sd card). The stock htc browser finds them and recognizes them as music, but no other music player does. How can i keep the music on the on-board memory, while being able to use other music players?
    2) The incredible has tons of stock apps that I really do not (such as city ID, whatever the hell that is), and I would really like to get rid of them. Is there any way to uninstall stock htc apps?

    • twigs45

      I meant to say that the stock htc MUSIC PLAYER recognizes my music, but no other music player does.

    When I try to view it, I get this message “This is a private video. If you have been sent this video, please make sure you accept the sender's friend request”. I tried viewing it in YouTube too, but get a Red “Private Video” message there as well.

    • evltwn

      same here 🙁

      • Tom

        I guess he got a message about it. It was working fine when Kellex first put it up. I mean… Google does own YouTube, and I'm sure they don't want that out

  • Justin

    I want that HUGE droid statue, DIBS!

  • mkedroid

    Ok, question. So if most of us here are rooted, and we do not receive OTA updates, how will we get our Froyo? I know that Froyo will be hacked like 2.1 was, but that will take some time. Who wants to wait when Flash player is coming with Froyo? And if there is a way to go back to stock 2.1 update 1, how will we root after we get 2.2? Am I worried for nothing, or is someone else feeling me? I'm concerned.

    • Tom

      Fact: I was running 2.1 about 2 months before the OTA 2.1 came out. Devs get it and release it pretty damn quick.

    • OldNuc

      The 2.1 OTA was rooted withing about an hour of the capture of the OTA file. If it is going to be easy it will not take long.

      • mkedroid

        I hope you guys are right. Even so, can we see a video on how to go back to
        stock 2.1 update 1 just in case? Kellex?

  • aarynk

    Looks like I will have to change my avatar soon!! Good bye Eclair… HELLO FROYO!!! Bring it on

  • dylan84

    Awesome! I kinda want that giant Android statue though.

    • aarynk

      HAHA I was thinking the same thing!

      • dylan84

        I'd put it on my front lawn and be the coolest around. Haha.

        • Tom

          I want miniatures of all of them. So that I can start making a path of Google awesomeness on my front lawn.

    • ditto

  • That's it. I'm going out for frozen yogurt.

    • At UofI they have a store that is all the frozen yogurt you can eat.
