1 - Nareos Partners with m2any for Audio ID Fingerprinting Announces Launch of PeerBox Mobile
By incorporating m2any’s AudioID fingerprinting technology, PeerBox Mobile gains the capability of identifying copyrighted songs allowing Peerbox to avoid violating copyrights as well as to sell these songs legally should users wish to purchase them. AudioID also supports the very cool On-the-Air song identification feature that allows a user to record roughly 15 seconds of a song and have that song identified by the service. Cingular is offering a similar service right now however they’re charging a per use fee that I believe is around $0.99 per use.
I’ve previously reviewed PeerBox Mobile while it was in closed beta and found it to be terrific. I don’t know if I’ll love it as much with a large percentage of the music catalog locked down, but for the few weeks of the test I was riding high downloading music on the fly whenver the mood struck. The ability to find and download music straight to your phone no matter where you are is something that I think will catch on like wildfire. Listening to music is largely a spontaneous and in the moment experience and being able to instantly gratify yourself with OTA downloads is a simple pleasure that makes your life richer and more memorable.
According to the company, another new feature, recogntion of verbal song requests (so you don’t have to type the names on your phone keypad) is coming soon. I say this application plus the Nokia N91 or one of the Sony Walkman Musicphones and you’ll do what I do - and find the old iPod spends more and more time living in the charger and less and less as a second (or third) device in my pocket or backpack.
