The Ring Tone Musician
from the is-he-the-guy-we-beat-up? dept
Maybe it’s a sign that I’m getting old, but I simply can’t stand all the different “ringtones” people use on the mobile phones. I realize that they’re a big hit and some even see ringtones as a huge moneymaking opportunity, but they’re insanely annoying. I still don’t understand why most people can’t simply set their phones to vibrate when they’re out in public, so as not to disturb everyone else around them. Here’s an article though, about a failed rock musician who has found a new career translating popular songs into ringtones. Though, the article does point out that, eventually, they expect phones to be able to just play the actual song itself. Then people won’t know whether it’s their phone ringing or a radio playing somewhere.
