Wizards and Magic Stuff
In a nutshell this is the App that pushed me over the How-do-they-invent-this-shit? edge. The Please-Make-It-Stop edge. The If-you-carry-on-like-this-I-shall-never-leave-the-house edge.
I'm imagining I'm potentially already preaching to the converted but there must be at least one of you who won't have heard of it, yet. (My mother reads this blog).
What you do is, when you hear a song that you don't know the name of, you click on your Shazam App, put your phone close to the music source for a bit. Your phone has a listen, thinks for a bit and then comes up with the name of the song (in my case, Train -Drive By).
THEN, all you need to do is push the download link and the nice people at Apple, for a small fee, will give you the song. And then you get to listen to it until you're thoroughly sick of it.
It's magic, I'm telling you and it's messing with my head.
But then, I suppose I shouldn't wind myself up about it too much, I bet nobody really understood electricity, back in the 1700s.
