iPhone "plug in" sound =

Identity confirm sound in Minority Report. Anyone ever notice that? I googled it to see if I was just out of the loop, but I found nothing.

Its the same little bleep sound. I guess iPhone creators wanted to pay homage to the inspiration of multitouch demonstrated in the movie?

Here's a comment from the YouTube clip that confirms this:

-sigh- I don't know where to start. Sound design is a whole industry unto itself. Sound designers work hard on this stuff and sell it to media companies, usually as compilation "packs", grouped together thematically. This is exactly like the same font in two different places and freaking out about it.

That kind of makes sense in the scheme of things but knowing that sound design is a beast onto itself, I can't help but to think that Apple, through Pixar, could have access to sound effects and their talented artists. Now, who came up with it first? I caught this little "easter egg" just now.

Minority Report is on TNT right now, and I noticed the iPhone sync sound right away (after Anderton had his eyes scanned). At first I thought it was my iPhone. I had to pause and replay the scene a couple of times because I wasn't sure if it was my iPhone making a random sync sound or if it was the movie.

Strange......
