Ring-Tone Rage -- April Fool's Day, 2007
National Public Radio's Weekend Edition Sunday reported that New York City Democratic councilman David Yassky had called for a ban on obnoxious ring tones.

As of April 1, 2008, NPR reported, cell phone users would be restricted to four city-approved ring tones.
