Apple’s Very Bad Vibrations, A Chat with Florida’s Grim Reaper and Military-Grade Marketing B.S.

Hey! Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?

Actually that’s wrong. That’s not the most annoying sound in the world. This is:

Apple is so very evil for making “radar” the default alarm ringtone, a sound so incredibly anxiety-inducing I’m getting the shakes just thinking about it, especially when you consider that there’s a perfectly good, perfectly melodic and perfectly vibe-y sound that’s been around for 54 years that could be used instead.

Vibe check, Apple.
