Awful computer sounds Is it just me?
Practically the first thing I do when I start with a new operating system is to set the sound scheme to silent. I cannot stand things beeping at me all the time. I was particularly heartened to hear that Tridge had debarked his microwave some months ago (something I’d love to do, but have not the ability).
I post this because I’ve had to turn my mobile phone on and off a couple of times. Each time it starts up with an annoying, quite loud and medium-high pitched “ping”. I was thinking to myself that it would be the one thing I would change about the phone. (Although, in retrospect, in-call screen handling leaves a lot to be desired – HTC Desire).
Exactly who thinks all this audio garbage is useful (blind people I guess excepted) – or am I the alien and you all love being surrounded by audio chatter?
