Shazam Is Awesome!

Shazam, the iPhone app, is completely made of awesome. The promo for the new season of "House" has a cool song that I didn't know, but Kathy and I wanted to buy it. In the bad old pre-Shazam days, we'd have just been screwed. Instead, fire up Shazam, hit the "tag now" button, and let the commercial play. Not only did it identify the song, but makes it easy to purchase from the iTunes Music Store. Yay Shazam!

Interestingly enough, that version pegged out the "relevance" meter when searching for the title. Apparently lots of other people are also Shazam-ing commercials too. We're a meme.

Now go download it for your iPhone and use it. A lot.

P.S. The song is "Grounds for Divorce" by Elbow.
