Blast from the past
Posted by BPuhl on July 29, 2008
Listening to the radio this morning, there was a commercial which included the sound of a modem dialing up and connecting. Wow, haven’t heard one of those in a while. In fact, that commercial or the occasional rerun of Wargames are the only times that I can remember recently hearing the familar Beeeeeeppp bbeeeeepppp ssssshhhhhhhhhhh click – and these were just recordings of it.
Hmm… when was that last time that you heard an “actual modem” dialing up? Does anyone even use those things anymore?
