Ringtones & Work
By DaveLevy on Jan 05, 2006
While Scott McNealy, in better times, when he had time to worry about minor issues, said he found personalising the ringtone on a phone a bad thing. He is in dubious company, Norman Lamont, when Chancellor of the Exchequer famously decided to tax phones; he was interrupted at dinner in a restaurant. Anyway I don't agree, neither of them work in open plan or use trains. I reckon being able to recognise your phone by hearing it, if you are in a space with many phones, is productivity enhancing, despite the fact that some people have some desperately annoying ringtones.
Given their price I'd spend my own money on them for the convenience.
Now, if I could only find Mott the Hoople's "Golden Age of Rock & Roll"
