'iChime'--another way to drive neighbors nuts

Program your doorbell to play your tunes.

The doorbell may be the next ring tone. Already we've seen a way to customize the otherwise boring chime with your own MP3s, and now there's more elaborate hardware coming out to match this ill-advised home accessory.

The "iChime" is a unit that can be programmed to play either a choice of about 50 pre-loaded songs and sounds or your own tunes, tranferred from an iPod or computer. (Just a wild guess, but you'll probably want the latter.)

Gizmodiva says all it takes is "an easy two-wire replacement," though we're skeptical given our all-thumbs approach to home improvement. Then again, if you could program it to match the Star Trek horn in the car, it might all be worth it.
