New Website Emulates the Sounds of a Coffee Shop

It streams the sounds of a bustling coffee shop through your computer speakers so you can pretend your cat is a snooty barista and the sounds of your roommate in the bathroom are actually a hot new song by the coolest band ever.

You can also test the theory that ambient noise is good for workflow. However, if you want to eat an overpriced scone you'll have to make it yourself and then charge yourself for it which could get confusing. It's only PC-based for now but an iPhone app is coming soon.
