Have you ever noticed that many of the digital devices that come out now use/include old/original sounds from the original product? For example when you take a photo on an iPad it makes the sound of a camera shutter, even though the iPad doesn’t use a shutter on its camera.
See companies have worked out that we associate sounds with products, and a problem lots of people seem to have with digital technology is that it has no ‘soul’. Adding these sounds that we are familiar with though, helps people become more comfortable and gives the product the ‘soul’ that it was previously missing.
