Wonders of technology

September 13th, 2008

So my roommate and I just discovered that we have a talking smoke alarm*! In addition to three ear-piercing skull-splitting beeps every few seconds, the alarm features a female voice that says “Fire. Fire.” (It’s not an overly excited voice; I assume she’s trying to help victims stay calm.) I had no idea such things even existed.  I’m wondering about the reason for the additional information (Fire. Fire.) – do some people have multiple appliances that emit ear-piercing skull-splitting beeps, so they’re not sure which alarm is going off?

*I am not the reason for this discovery. For once.

    Any time you want to hear that alarm again, just let me know – I’ll cook something. 😉

    Wow! I should be in bed asleep, but instead I’m laughing hysterically at your blog (weblog, I know). 🙂
