V Cast Song ID is SO COOL!!!!

The following is an unpaid, unsolicited and probably uninteresting product review....

I drive a lot; I spend a lot of time in my gets-worse-gas-mileage-than-a-Humvee Minivan. I take the kids to school, I go to Target, I go to work, I go to Target, I pick the kids up, we all go to Target, etc. I spend a lot of time listening to the radio in my car, and when I hear a song I like, I either have to stay in the car long enough to hear the radio dude tell me what it's called, or I have to remember a snippet of the lyric so that I can google it when I get home. Those things rarely actually happen. So, today, I'm driving (home from work; not Target) and I heard this song I've been hearing for a few weeks but have neglected to remember any lyrics to for subsequent googling, and I says to myself, "Self? you should remember some lyrics to this song so that you can google it when you get home..." and then I remembered that my new phone came with V Cast Song ID!!! So, I, naturally, pull over to the side of the road and do all of the following with 100% safety and legality... *cough* .... and I pull out my phone, press 2 buttons, hold it up to the speakers and, I shit you not, 10 SECONDS LATER I've got the name of the song and the band.

Is that not the coolest fucking thing you've ever heard??? Tell me that's not the coolest fucking thing you've ever heard. Seriously. Tell me that. I dare you....

This is the song, by the way, which I now own thanks to a balance remaining on my iTunes gift card. It's Arcade Fire, Ready to Start. YAY technology!!
