Shazam is the best app for the iPhone (music identifier) — is this magic or what?

July 18, 2008

You have to see it to believe it. Shazam is like magic. When the app is put onto the iPhone (which you can do free), the program will listen to any music recording playing in the room — yes, you heard that right! Talk about a clever way to spy on people in the future through their iPhones, but that’s another review.

Shazam then will identify the music that is playing by title and artist, plus give you links to iTunes to buy the music and the video on YouTube. This is so wickedly unbelievable and cool!

BTW, this technology does suggest that finding copyright infringement on the Internet should be far easier than the music industry lets on.

Off topic, but check out this restaurant review:
