    I Miss the Dial-Up Modem Sound

    If you were born after Wi-Fi, the dial-up modem noise is what electronics used to sound like: dated, from the era of the fax machine and the non-customisable ringtone. To me, it’s more than that. The sound symbolises the limits of what whole generations had agreed was basically tolerable to get online.
