Sounds You’ll Never Hear Again – #19 [VIDEO]

I bring you #19 on the list of the 20 sounds you’ll soon hear disappear in the next 10 years or so…

The brief tone. The dialing of those magical numbers. And that screech — by God, that screech. It’s musical, really, starting with a single beep and expanding into cascading harmonies of mechanical song. Then comes the satisfying bursts of static, with their climactic rush that screams out:  Yes- We’re connected at 9600BPS!

For many of us, the sequence brings back warm memories of bulletin board systems and slow-as-heck dial-up Internet. For future generations, it’ll likely be little more than an irritating noise and blocky graphics and when everyone had a “homepage” loaded with pictures of their kids
