Name That Noise: I'll Never Stop

Can you identify today's mystery sound?

By  

ANSWER: The Macintosh startup sound has evolved over the years, but the last three tones are the ones we're playing here. They're from the Macintosh Quadra AV, the PCI-based Power Mac and the iMac (and every model since then, which uses the same tone now).

Let us know (kshaw@nww.com) if you have any other suggestions for mystery sounds for future episodes!
