8:45 AM -- Pretty inevitable that people would start to see ringtones as something more than annoying sound tags at some point.

So-called "neo-classical" composer Max Richter has made an "experimental collection of music for use as ringtones that you can download here.

Richter says on his site: "This medium is interesting -- it is very immediate, personal and democratic."

The composer is hedging his bets, however, and also issuing an album version. That will be out in the U.K. next week and hit stateside in September.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.

He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
