    Got a the sound as my ringtone. It's great when the kids hear it and are baffled what it is.

    Brings back memories of being incredibly sad and knowing when there were issues or no point connecting as the sounds weren't quite right

    that's oddly creepy. Quite appropriate today!
    Strikes fear into the non-geeks because of the noises. Fear into the geeks that might just recognise what it is.

    56k? NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    The colours - and the noise - makes me think that 56k will soon be featured in the next Skrillex album.

    The 56k noises remind me of most of Aphex Twin's music (especially the track with the hidden face).
