Last week while watching a movie, I loved a song I heard in the background, so my friend held up her iPhone for 10 seconds and the artist and song title was instantly presented to me. The application which was used is called Shazam. It can identify nearly any song within 10 seconds, no matter how obscure it may be, or even if it is a strange remix. It can be used anywhere, including a store or a restaurant with background noise.
This is an example of how technology is constantly making life easier and more convenient for us. In the past, if you wanted to know the name of a song you had to wait for it to be announced on the radio, now you can be anywhere in the world and the music can be identified within seconds. This application adds to the networked world by instantly connecting people with music found in all locations and exposing people to new artists they may have never been aware of before.
