An article in NY Times.
haha thats funny, why dont the kids just turn it on vibrate though? kids these days...
i saw this sound being demonstrated on the television a few weeks back. I'm 29 and couldn't hear a thing but my younger sister could. very strange
??? My thoughts exactly.
Kids around here will text during classes. If the cell phone goes off during a quiet part you can hear this nrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......... sound.
That's clever, but that noise is kind of painful to listen to. I definitely wouldn't want to hear that every time I got a text message.
I read about that a few weeks ago. I did the test and I couldn't hear it.
It does make me wonder though....when I was on my meetup, Joe and Scott were talking about the whining noise that TVs make when they are on, but not on a channel. I couldn't, for the life of me, hear it, but both of them could. Now, they are both older than the age listed in that article, but younger than me...so...maybe that's why I coudln't hear it? Hmmmmm.
Damn, after all the rock and roll concerts , playing in a ska band, and pumpin up the jam in my car.. I can still hear it! (28 in a week)
I know I'm not the only one that can walk by a house and 'hear' if the t.v. is on or not...I'd trade this power for x-ray vision though.
Hehe yeah I can always tell when a TV is on too.
I must just be deaf.
I can even tell when my neighbors TV is on when I'm in my back yard. I have really weird hearing though. The ringtone thing about blew my eardrums out.
