13 Tech Sounds You Just Don’t Hear Anymore


Quote:As we move toward an age of quiet gadgets that do everything possible not to get in our way, we’re losing our appreciation for all the magic under the hood. Not long ago, the sounds our devices made reminded us that they were doing something truly important, whether that task was connecting us to the Internet or bringing us back to the beginning of our favorite VHS movies.

A child born today has a greater chance of hearing a real cloned dinosaur roar than a busy signal. But for those of us who lived through the beginning of the PC revolution, these 13 tech sounds will always be hardcoded into our memories.





Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

For what it's worth,

I was 14 when this song came out, my hero cousin had just died in Vietnam , and my eyes were opening to the big lie of big .gov.
Seems like what happened then is happening now, but I won't survive this one.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.
