***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

Mac OSes and Sony PlayStation startup sound

The first startup sound I ever heard a game console make was from the Sega Genesis. When I heard that "SE-GA!" with the blue SEGA logo appear, I said, "Damn.. this is some serious stuff!"

What blew me away however was the intro sound for the original Sony Playstation when you first turned it on. It's a very long intro that's almost 20 seconds long, looks big and sounds big. Some call it scary. I don't. I thought it was awesome:

When you saw and heard that, you said, "OH, YEAH! NICE!"

This sound is so loved that some guy did two mock-ups of what MacOS and OS X would look like if they had the Sony PlayStation startup sound.

They're old, but came out quite good:

I'm not a Mac guy at all, but I like these a lot.
