overheard at lunch a few days ago:

A young girl, maybe 4 or 5, sitting with her father at the table behind us.

girl: That ring is just like mommy's.
dad: I like that ring.
girl: It's pretty.
dad: Yes, I like the way it sounds.

Yup, they were talking about a cell phone ringtone - - it took me a little while to clue in. I wonder what her generation's view of technology will be like...so bound up with personal connections, from the beginning.
