Remember how completely confusing, inconvenient, and terrible it was when your computer crashed back in the day? It’s funny to think about the product decisions Mac designers had to make when anticipating the eventual demise of their creations. Click through to hear some of the ‘chimes of death’ that were made to accompany the unfortunate moment when early Macs met their end, from 512 Pixels.
We’re all familiar with the Mac’s startup chime. While it has changed over the years, it has greeted users with its friendly tone for decades.
What you may not know is that for years, the Mac also came with a death sound, that would play when the machine was unable to properly boot.
