No, Twitter may not get acquired anytime soon, but its clones certainly are: now Korean search and online gaming giant Naver has acquired Me2Day, a microblogging service, Web 2.0 Asia reports. The deal is valued at about $2 million (2.2 billion KRW). Me2Day beta-launched in 2007, per CNET Asia, and hadn’t raised funding outside of some angel investments. Naver, a division of NHN Corp., will integrate the microblogging features within its various portals and sites.

What a great idea for the ringtone subscription business!! Sell a monthly subscription of $9.99 for a phone that is six feet under. Talk about “Life” time value of a subscriber!

So, I just could not resist cranking up some “Grateful Dead” and producing the industries first top ten ringtones for or dearly departed’s phones. With a little tongue in cheek , here we “go”.
Number 10:

“Casey Jones” By the Grateful Dead

There are several potential ringtone’s from this one song, here is the best:

Trouble ahead, lady in red,
Take my advice you’d be better off dead.
Switchman’s sleeping, train hundred and two is
On the wrong track and headed for you.

Number 9:

“Hello, Goodbye” By the Beatles

“You say yes, I say no
You say stop and I say go go go, oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello hello
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello
I don’t know why you say goodbye, I say hello”

Number 8:

“Kiss me through the Phone” by Soulja Boy

Girl you know I miss you
I just wanna kiss you
But I can’t right now so baby kiss me thru the phone
(kiss me thru the phone)
See you later on..
Kiss me thru the phone
(kiss me thru the phone)
See you when I get home

She call my phone like
(da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)
We on the phone like
(da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)
We taking pics like
(da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)
She dial my number like
(da da dadadada da da dadadada da da..)

Six seven eight triple nine eight two one two
(678) 999-8212

Number 7:

“Yesterday” By The Beatles

Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Number 6:

Break on Through to the Other Side” by the Doors

You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side, yeah

Number 5:

“No Air” – By Jordan Sparks and Chris Brown

[Jordin]
If I should die before I wake
It’s cause you took my breath away
Losing you is like living in a world with no air, oh

[Chris]
I’m here alone, didn’t wanna leave
My heart won’t move, it’s incomplete
Wish there was a way that I can make you understand

Number 4:

Viva La Vida – By ColdPlay

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
“Now the old king is dead! Long live the king

Number 3:

“Only the Good Die Young” by Billy Joel

They say there’s a heaven for those who will wait
Some say it’s better but I say it ain’t
I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
the Sinners are much more fun…

you know that only the good die young
oh woah baby
i tell ya
only the good die young,

Number 2:

“Stairway to Heaven” – by Led Zepplin

(Ringtone is the song Intro)

And my top ringtone for calling departed loved ones is…..

“Help!” -by The Beatles

Many possibilities for ringtone hooks in this song!

Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

While this was just for “phun” – don’t be surprised if you see a list like this marketed on the Internet by some ringtone company!
