Former Cell Phone Alert Panic Syndrome

BE-DOOT BE-DOOT.  BE-DOOT BE-DOOT.  That's the default alert sound for one of my old cell phones or PDAs - probably the Palm or iPod Touch.  I heard it while I was walking around on a different floor of my office today and I momentarily freaked out.  What appointment was I missing???

I get a strange nostalgia when I hear the noises of electronic devices that I don't use anymore.
