(via Here You Still Can Listen to Sound of a Nintendo Game Boy)

The Museum of Endangered Sounds is trying to preserve the technological sounds of the recent and distant past — like the sing-songy Nokia cell phone ringtone,the blurpy Speak & Spell and the warm hiss of a vinyl record. I gotta say that hearing a dial-up modem connection again made my neck muscles tighten. The site has been around for awhile but admit it, isn’t it time to re-hear a Ma Bell push button? — Heidi
