Do Phones Ring Anymore?
On the way to my office, I heard a phone vibrate and thought it was mine. Wrong. Turns out that most phone vibrations sound the same. Ringtones are sometimes the same, but it's easier to have a unique ring than a unique vibe. I think kids these days (and older people too) leave their phones on vibrate. Sometimes I think they're on silent because I see people pick up their phone all of a sudden and answer it. I definitely hear less ringing from phones than I used to. I wonder what's caused that shift away from an audible (ok, I guess you can hear a vibration) notification.
