What's that buzz, tell me what's happenin'

My boys are having fun with their IPods -- It's educational, they assure me. They're learning sign language, binary code and if they get lost in the woods, it's got a compass app. Oh, yeah, and SpongeBob reruns, too.

They also downloaded an application that makes a ringing sound that adults can't hear. Max think it's very funny that he can set it off right next to my head and I have absolutely no reaction, but two rooms away, 19-year-old Annie will shriek "TURN IT OFF!"

Me: "Quit playing video games and get your chores done."

Max: "We're not playing video games, we're annoying our sister."

I was curious about that tone - turns out it's dubbed "The Mosquito" and you can read about it here.
