Random Thought - 1/16/2005

Random Thought of the Moment

You know how in a serious place, say a class lecture or a business meeting, when a cell phone goes off, they always tend to have these stupid elaborate ring tones, as if I haven't heard Pachebel Canon for the googleth time thank you very much.

Not only that, but when they shut them off, and in turn, get other people to shut their respective cell phones off, the cell phone turning off has a requisite high pitched scale going downwards, creating even more noise than before.

Now is it cell phone manufactuer's faults for putting in the feature that creates noise when you turn off a cell phone? When you turn it off, do you really need an extra noise to let you know it's being turned off?

Or is the fault with those users who can simply turn it off by taking out the battery and putting it back in?

I guess it's a good thing my cell phone shuts off randomly so that this rarely occurs. Plus I have no friends.
