All through time companies cut costs to make bigger profits... but cost cutting can hurt the consumer as well.

For the fun of it I decided to convert canyon.mid (old Windows 3.1 file) into a palm alarm sound and I discovered that the Palm Z22 had a piezo buzzer. 

I took it farther and tried the same sound on my PalmOne Zire 31 and found that it was so much better.

Anyway here is the comparison of the sound output on both devices.
