Identifies mysterious tones from IT equipment

Does the cacophony of whistles, beeps and buzzes from your phone, tablet or computer seem about as incomprehensible as R2D2? Can't tell whether your house is ablaze, or if you just got mentioned on Twitter? Alert Tone Shazam would identify the known universe of default tones and let you know what made the sound and what it means, and as a bonus, maybe even how to shut that particular tone up.

       This is your best idea so far, [velo]. A lot of inexplicable noises come out of [IT].

       See what I mean?

       If you don't understand the tones, then you deserve to burn. It saves the trouble of culling the technically incapable.

       What if someone Tweets that your house is on fire?

       Then you should have voted for someone who can tweet without inflaming the world.   

       Would Shazam strike a lightning bolt and turn you into Captain Marvel?

       Dentist shazam would be useful..... eeeeeeahhhh - ah - that's the exact sound of a distal, occlusal filling on an upper right T4.
