    ...OK, I asked why my iMac makes loud popping sounds when my cell rings or I use it i the same room....but this i don't understand, I sometimes set my cellphone on my printer, and this is the third time it has happened, the cell will start my computer to popping, although no call is coming to my phone, and it sets the printer off, either spitting out a blank page, and the power light flashes on and off....I have to press to restart it...what's up???
    Is my prinyer possesed..poltergiest in my hard drive?
    And heres the kicker, I am not using Bluetooth, my printer is connected by wires~!
    I havn't seen the movie Pulse yet, but sounds like it!

    I'm afraid you've got a ghost in your mac. Call applecare, press 5 and you'll be put straight through to the Ghostbusters.

    Meh, I had a phone from Verizon that made by printer make noises, lol. It would make the ink cartridges move over like when you open it to replace ink. I would have to unplug it and reset it every single time until I learned why it was doing that.

    The CRT on our old dell would start making "I'm going to blow up" noises when I got a text message.

    With my razr v3c, nothing has acted weird with it receives/sends any data or calls.

    No clue about the printer (must be haunted), but a popping noise coming from the computer sounds like it must be coming from the speakers, specifically. Some speakers will do that when you hold a cell near them, even if it's just in standby. My speakers make a very faint crackling noise when the control pod is too near my wireless router.
