"The Electronic Frontier Foundation is spreading the word about Internet service providers likely to go easy on people who share their wireless access."
That’s the way to do it babe, I like it, uh uh uh uh. (damn, can’t find that song, I’m probably getting the lyrics wrong. I want to be able to sing to the Internet with a corny (19)60’s soul backing vocals shrill voice and, with the magic of voice-enabled (20)10’s century web services, retrieve the song back.)
Update: Jason points to K.C. and Sunshine Band‘s That’s the Way (I Like It)
"Oh, that’s the way, uh-huh uh-huh,
I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh."
That must be it! I had the lyrics, rhythm and tempo all wrong (it’s obviously 70’s disco/funk), and I invented a babe who wasn’t there (must be my French genes.)
Jason also points to Shazam as a first step towards ubiquitous music identification: "Shazam is a brand new service which tags music over your mobile phone. All you do is dial the Shazam test number and hold your mobile phone towards the music for 15 seconds after the tone. (We will end the call.) Then you will receive a txt with the name of the track and artist." It will obviously not recognize my "singing," but still, that’s pretty cool.
