Probably pattern recognition. If innocuous background noise is perceived to be intelligent data, the brain amplifies it (isolates / focuses) rather than filtering it out. It's possible that the voices go away in complete sensory deprivation.

On the other hand, some studies show people born deaf also have language hallucinations - in sign language or lip movement.

I have a feeling that part of what afflicts people like you is a superior ability of pattern recognition. Unfortunately, that means you can "hear things" in the background noise of the world and they are recognized as voices and words.

I would assume that it's closely related to genetic advantages that would allow you to learn people's faces more easily.

Are you saying the dispatch computers not only have iTunes set up, but are also tied to personal iTunes accounts? I'll leave the full hard drive problem for someone else. But if 911 is really that important, then these computers should not be messed with - by the users either.

Time sharing: The use of many people by the computer.
