Ringtone Article

It's been a while since we re-published any articles here - that is partly because we are being more selective/rigorus and partly because we have finally managed to get clear of all the gropus we joined to access an amazing volume of unuseable material. So this arrive unsolicited and here it is:

Many Ringie Dingies

Ringtones are more easily understood when you understand how
cell phones work. The brain of the cell phone is its
microprocessor. Ringtones work with your cell phone's
microprocessor and memory to create a distinctive musical
presentation when someone calls your phone. Your phone, much
like your computer, uses its microprocessor to tell it what
to do and control all it does and works with memory where
the programs are stored. Ringtones are individual programs
for your phone that get placed into your cell phone memory
to be brought out by the microprocessor when your phone
receiver gets the message that a call is coming in.

Phones that are capable of loading and using ring tones (and
most are) hold a range of notes in their memory and so the
program in the ringtone just has to tell the phone's
microprocessor which of these stored notes to plan, in what
sequence and at what speeds. The adjustment of these
variables at the program's instruction can produce a
virtually endless number of different ringtones.

To get your new ringtone you just have to load the program
to your cell phone. After, that is, you choose the ringtone
you want. You have a great number of ringtone choices from
many ringtone Web sites, some of which charge for the
ringtones, some of which do not. The difference isn't so
much the site you choose, as it is the music you choose. If
it is copyrighted the site has to pay the artist royalties.
If the copyright has run out, like it would, for example, on
classical music, there are no royalties to pay, and the
public domain music is probably free to you. You also have
to make sure that your phone is compatibility with the
ringtone you are choosing.

You generally have a choice of how to upload your ringtone
program to your phones, although with some phone models you
might note. But the ones that are usual are by using the
airwaves to deliver the ringtone program to your cell; by
uploading by data cable to your laptop or PC and then
finally to your phone: and by the use of your cell directly,
putting the program into it by its own keypad.

Which you use may depend on your phone model. Your
instruction manual or your carrier or manufacturer's Web
site will tell you. Data link, when offered is easiest for
the long haul but for the first data link you have to pay
and you have to go through a lengthy setup. What most do is
use the airwaves. A text message or SMS will tell your phone
that you want this program in its memory. If you have phones
that offer enhanced versions of SMS your phone is going to
immediately recognize the ringtone. It will do the same for
graphics as well.

What's the most common way to use the airwaves for ringtone
loading to your phone is by going to the ringtone Web site,
choosing the tone you want, typing in your cell phone number
and then letting the site program the message to your phone
directly. The other option is to use a gateway site for SMS
that will send the specific message to your phone. As cell
phones continue to evolve offering more and more services to
more and more users, ringtones will advance as well. Some of
the new phones also let you record songs you pick out as
well as voice messages for the ring tones. Many also let you
choose distinct ringtones for distinct callers so you know
who is calling without looking at the number coming in.


Mckinley Garringer is the owner of
Drwho Ringtone
which is an excellent place to find
ringtone links, resources
and articles. For more information on this article,

Of course our ringtones have the added value of our original percussion arrangements which are particularly appropriate to the contxt of a ringtone. We will have to check out the SMS gateway issue and see if we can add that to our current download capabilities.

Introducing Children To Music… Strategies For Success

While we struggle to restore full menu fuctionality We thought you'd like to hear about a more uplifting topic: Introducing Children To Music - Strategies For Success I've heard a million parents lament the fact that they didn'’t get their children interested in music sooner. There are also hundreds of adults out there that wish they had learned how to play an instrument when they were younger. Studies actually support the idea that music stimulates certain brain connections and can actually help children grow smarter! Music also provides an invaluable outlet for safe expression of feelings and emotions, and can also serve as an important learning tool throughout your children's lives! Music helps educate in many ways, by developing children'’s memory skills and nourishing their spirit. Now, some children are a bit resistant to music at first, but you can easily find ways to encourage them to enjoy music in many different forms early in life. You need to si

Bigdaddy's in the Wings

Friday's customer mystery is unresolved ... But meanwhile, word on the SEO street is that, the next major re-index on Google, code name Bigdaddy, is being prepared and a few of our keywords seem to be in play. Since Jagger we have already seen our most competitive keywords drift back into effective obscurity but the rest seem pretty secure at the moment. It looks as if this could cause some further erosion but nothing too exciting. Our sub-menu problem isn't helping people to move around the site so we must get to the bottom of it. The response from support hasn't been too helpful so far but we shall persist. The production software problem is also proving intractable - technology is great when it works but more than a tad frustrating when it don't.

We're Back with the Symphonies

I can't believe it has taken so long but we are finally there and two Beethoven Symphonies have been published. An early bird has already bought the first movement of the Fifth! The hubris of recording these wonderful pieces on new world instruments caused me to pause for some time but each time I listened to them I heard something new and the overall effect was so positive I have pressed ahead. Inevitably some of the machinery was a bit creaky after such little use - not least my memory for where I had put things. We also bought a new player which is taking a little time to bed in - not helped by browser quirks on this PC which refused to play them - sorted now! We're looking to develop the use of play lists as a way of promoting sales but there is a bit more work to do on that. The auto play of the excerpt from the first movement of Beethoven's 5th is a temporary celebration and will be replaced by a more controllable solution later this week. After the repair work
