Re: Shazam's New Tune Is Kinda Catchy

Shazam was one of the first applications Apple decided to specifically feature in one of those "There's an App for That" ads, and it's no doubt one of the biggest reasons Shazam has been downloaded so many times. The company behind the app, Shazam Entertainment, claims to have over 20 million users. I've been one of them for many months now, but a few days ago I accidentally erased Shazam from my phone. No problem, I thought, we'll just find it again in the App Store.

Can't wait to try out Encore. Shazam is great and has helped me win numerous bets with friends at the bar. :)

I thought this was cool. Here's a blog post about a test between Shazam and another music identifier, Midomi.

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
