The Smart Phone Ring Tone Story

It's a big ol' Happy 40th Birthday to the mobile phone!

That's right - 40 years ago, the first mobile phone was born. It took 10 hours to charge and provided 35 minutes of talk time.

How times have changed, eh?

Just look at your generic smart phone. It has a wealth of features and, more importantly, ring tones!

Everything you could want, from the tangible to the abstract, the everyday to the bizarre. They are so varied in fact, that we wondered if there is a story to connect them.

Turns out, there is.
