Thanks Again, Frauhofer!
"Software developed by Germany's Fraunhofer Institut, the creators of the MP3 ... called "Query by Humming," -- a type of melody recognition software program that identifies a song by title and composer based on a person humming a few bars into a microphone."
Sure, it'll put quaint sites like this
out of business, but think of the fun you'll have walking by your co-workers cubicle only to hear them furtively humming into their PC so that it can search for that pesky tune they can't get out of their head.
(This technology sounds familiar, so advanced apologies for a double post. I did a search, really.)
