There are some things out there that can drive me crazy like nothing else and one of those things is sound books. The worst offenders are Disney sound books. I’m fine with the songs that are played normally, but when it’s a chintzy, chip-tune, midi, compressed abomination of what used to be a catchy song, it’s like nails on a chalkboard for me.
Or those sound books that just play stupid jingles that have nothing to do with anything the product is about. I’ve seen Star Wars sound books and other Disney/Dreamworks sound books with insipid, uninspired sound boards making noises way below what our technology is affordably capable of doing now. Heck, we have greeting cards that play full songs when you open them, you’d think sound book technology would have caught up by now.
