This is the coolest thing I've seen all day. You hear a song on the radio, jukebox, in the mall, whatever. You love the tune and want to know what it is. So you dial a number on your mobile phone, point it toward the music, wait 30 seconds, and Shazam! You receive a text message with the name of the song and artist.

If this service were available in the US, I'd be throwing money at it just to try it out. Alas, it's only in the UK right now, and only for certain mobile phone service providers. But clearly, this is a killer app for any kind of mobile device with a microphone and a wireless network connection. Put it on any cell phone, a BlackBerry, a Tungsten W. Kick ass.
