    Crackdown on Tibetan Ringtones 2010-05-21 Authorities in Tibet ban popular ringtones characterized as 'separatist.' Screen grab from a video of the song "The Hope of the Son of the Snow-City," taken from Tudou. HONG KONG—Students and teachers at a high school near the Tibetan city of Shigatse have been told to delete certain popular Tibetan-language songs from their cell phones after they were designated "unhealthy" by local education officials, according to its Web site.

    Or, if you're more technologically minded, you could always go for the nostalgia-inducing sounds of a 56k modem trying to connect. The ringtones are available as part of the BBC World Service's Save Our Sounds project - an effort to get people to record and send in 'endangered sounds' so they can be preserved for posterity. We've previously written about the project here (and also mentioned that it's one of nine BBC nominations for the Webby Awards.) The sound of the laughing hippo - which was recorded in the Serengeti - can best be described as a combination of the...

    The sombre atmosphere of a packed courtroom was shattered when an embarrassing ringtone of a woman moaning "Oh, yeah ... yeah ... oh, yeah ... do it to me" sounded out. Lawyers and people in the public gallery struggled to contain their laughter as the voice of a woman experiencing heightened sexual pleasure rang for up to 20 seconds. But the owner of the mobile phone was lucky not to find himself facing contempt charges as less than an hour earlier, people in the public gallery had been warned that mobile telephones should be switched off or they may be...

    NPR ^ | May 26, 2006 | Teens Turn 'Repeller' into Adult-Proof Ringtone
    All Things Considered, May 26, 2006 · The war between teens and authority figures has a new -- or old -- front: ears. British shopkeepers tired of teenage loiterers have turned to the Mosquito teen repellent, which emits a high-pitch frequency that most teenagers can hear -- but not most adults. But now teens have struck back against the Mosquito: They are using the same sound to communicate without adults' knowledge. At issue is a text-message ringtone that emits the same pitch as the Mosquito. Using it, students can learn about a new message while they're in class -- where...
