what was your first cellphone?
na-kuwento ko na yata dati na unang cellphone namin was a ‘home phone’. think of it as a landline pero mobile handset ang gamit namin. our monthly bill was P120.00 for just calls and then it had its special area in the living room kasi doon lang siya may signal! it was an old motorola but i can’t remember the unit name. hehe. then came ‘texting’ and we had that bright green & blue Bosch mobile phone. then came Nokia which soon dominated the market.
one of the nice things about the ‘newer’ mobile phones then was you can choose your ringtone. and there weren’t just 4 or 5 of them. there were about 15 or 20 and you could even compose your own ringtone!
but most people, i think, don’t know that those ringtones you had on your old 5110 or 3210 actually came from classical pieces. they sound boring to you, for sure but have you wondered how they sound once played on an orchestra? or even just a string quartet? then watch this:
amazing diba?! hehe.
keep on clicking the “related videos” on youtube to listen and watch more of the amazing MozART Group. grabe sila… they’re so funny! and i prefer them to the technoclassical performers na sumikat (e.g. Bond and Maksim). i have nothing against them, really. ayoko lang yata talaga ng techno… or at least how they delivered the pieces. heheh.
