An "Ear-conic" Interview With The Mac Start-Up Chime's Creator

Jim Reekes is one fascinating guy. He created the start-up chime you hear every time you restart your Mac. He uses the word "ear-conic" in a sentence. And in this (slightly NSFW) interview with Dutch TV, he brings the awesome.

The segment starts out in Dutch, but the interview is all in English. Other fun tidbits worth watching for: The name for "Sosumi"came out of Apple's legal spat with the Beatles. The Apple II sounds were built around "The Interval of the Devil." And an Amazon review for Wall-E made the Apple sound guy feel like a rockstar. It's more than worth ten minutes of your Friday.
