Anyone notice sound effects coming from the site?  It's got to be some ad, but I can't figure where it's coming from since there's multiple ads.  But it's an ad about microsoft cloud, now it's about AT&T

Hmm...new ad sources - we'll have to prune for sound.  Haaaaate sound and would never do that to you guys intentionally.

Well I recently installed Chrome, and turned on the gmail notification and thought it was that.  My email was going crazy today due to facebook and my birthday, so I thought it was that.  But then it started doing it when I wasn't getting emails, so I closed out tabs to rule it out and as soon as I closed GT it stopped.

I've had this, too. 

It always sounded like a video ad was running, but I couldn't see any video on any open tab.

But, yeah, closing GT ended it.  Seemed weird, as it had never happened before.
