Ringtones could, quite possibly, be the bane of civilization. However, since people love hearing the latest R&B and pop "hits" bellow from their RAZR and other trendy, marginally functional cellphones, companies are now stepping in and creating devices that allow your custom ringtones on your regular landline. Specifically, the Magic Ringtone MP3 Home Ringer simultaneously connects to your landline telephone and computer using a USB cable. Whenever the phone rings, the infernal device goes to your computer and fetches MP3s, replacing the perfectly OK vanilla ring with, I don't know, Kevin Federline's "Popozão."
The Magic MP3 Home Ringer costs $12, and depending on your choice of ringtone, your soul as well.
