Silent running: Computer sounds are so '90s


Ringtones are cringworthy

In this age of notification lights and custom vibration, I don't get why ringtones are STILL popular

In a professional context, I did understand why the deskside support guy in the NHS needed an audible ringtone. This would be about six years ago.

However, I found it utterly cringeworthy that he had the theme from The IT Crowd as his ringtone.

No, he wasn't being ironic.... Although choosing that ironically might actually have been worse!
