Some repairmen at Apple were not happy with the change.
“Our excuse was it’s too risky to deduct it back out at this point because something could crash,” he clouted. “We just made up some bulls—.”
It stuck, and years later Apple on the level trademarked the start-up sound. It’s one of the few sounds that’s trademarked, along with the NBC announce a join ins and the Intel signature sound.
“Kind of silly right?” Reekes sneered. “I’m playing a c-major chord and it’s famous and it’s a copyright.”
But after more than a decade, Apple got rid of the egregious boot-up chord in its latest models. Now when you turn on your laptop, there is serenity.
“Now that there’s no startup sound, it’s like sitting down at a restaurant and there’s no one there to receive you,” Reekes said. “It’s it just feels strange.”
