Only more irritating.
Like cell phones
Who in the fucking hell thought that the walkie-talkie-style cell phones were a good plan?
What bastard decided that people on cell phones weren't annoying enough, that they had to add the unnecessarily loud beeping, and a loud, digitized voice responding to the speaker's loudly phrased questions?
Who, sitting in a research lab, said, "You know who I hate? People! What can I do to annoy them further?"
And where does he live? And does he have any severe food allergies?
Why must technological innovation begin with such annoying goddamn inventions? There is no logical need for these new cell phones - NONE. The only thing gained is slightly louder volume, the ability to hold the cell phone as though you are a secret agent (which, mind you, looks very stupid UNLESS you are a secret agent), and the above-mentioned ability to irritate the fucking hell out of anyone in a 20-foot radius.
YOU DUMB-ASS PEOPLE! Just use your damn cell phones normally!
People are convinced that you want to hear the music on their headphones, their end (and now both ends) of their cell phone conversations, and the soundtrack to their gameboys.
