Apple Sounds Song

Here's a song, of sorts, made entirely of those annoying apple alert sounds.



Personally, I prefer this (gasp!) windows one, but they are working with much more modern sounds, so I guess that's not surprising.

More info about the apple one on the unofficial apple web log. Thanks to extrapepperoni for bringing that to my attention.

'Till Death or Blackberry do You Part

A new study commissioned by Sheraton hotels in honor of Global Out of Office Day (which should clearly be renamed) found that although most people feel that technology gives them more quality time and flexibility with family and friends (84%) and 77% say their PDA helps them enjoy life more, A whopping 87% of professionals bring their PDA into the bedroom, and in what may or may not be a related finding, more than one-third of folks surveyed (35%) say if forced to choose, they'd pick their PDA over their spouse. While some might say that says a lot about the state of so-called crackberry syndrome, I say dump your spouse already -- there's no love there.

Fortunately, there is an answer!
