iOS 5 star wars alert tones

LIFE. MIDTERMS. IT’S ALL GOING TO EAT ME ALIVE AAAAAHHHH. D:

Hopefully that explains my brief absence. If not…you’ve never been a college student. Anywho, Apple’s iOS 5 software update was released on Wednesday, and with it came a brand-new alert tones store. The current top alert tone, you ask?

That’s right. I cannot tell you how fun it is to have R2-D2 as my text message alert tone. I also snagged Darth Vader breathing and Agnes from Despicable Me (“IT’S SO FLUFFY I’M GONNA DIE”). Now, if only they’d get a few GLaDOS tones…

From MacRumors:

Ringtones have been available for purchase for a while, but the Alert Tones are a brand new offering.

Ringtones are $1.29 and alert tones are $0.99.

To get to the Tones Store, head to Settings/Sounds and select any of the tone options. Then click “Buy More Tones” at the top of that window.

Who else has snagged some of these awesome nerdy alert tones?

neopets

In the age of iPhones, World of Warcraft and Facebook…does anyone still remember Neopets?

*crickets chirping*

Just me, then? …Okay.

I can’t even remember when I started playing Neopets. However, over the years I’ve started and quit the game with multiple accounts. I remember my first pets were an Aisha and a Poogle (back before they were uber-hard to attain). I had another account with a green Uni that I had planned to paint Island. Nearly two years ago I started a completely new account, this time with multiple pets. I still have that account, though I’ve gotten incredibly lazy with it. :X

Still, I have that same goal of attaining an Island Uni. Why? I have no idea, I just always thought it was an awesome color paired with an awesome pet. And I desperately want a Chomby. THEY ARE SO CUTES!!

I also remember being a member of the Soup Faerie Helpers guild, which was massive. The website is still up, though it’s been inactive for ages.

So, does anyone besides me still log in every now and again? And not just in December to nab some sweet Advent Calendar prizes? Tell me about your goals, the largest amount Neopoints you ever saved, your favorite pets…and if you ever achieved any of your Neopets goals! And of course, if you want to be Neofriends feel free to add me. :)
