I Want!!!

I saw this commercial last night and it was about a cell phone that was so cool!! Remember when all you used to be able to do with cell phones is just talk?! This one, you can not only talk, but the feature I liked the most was fascinating, and nothing else in the World has it!!! Did you ever have a song that you recorded off the radio and you didn't know the name of the song or who sings it? I have! And it drives me NUTS!!!! But with this iphone 3G from AT&T you can hold the phone up to your stereo, play the song and the phone will tell you the name of the song, who sings it, and even tell you where you can purchase that song! That's way cool!!! I want that phone!! I've never been one for getting cell phones with all that fancy technology because I have enough trouble remembering to push the talk button on my phone!! But this is COOL!!!! I have so many songs I want to get and can't because I don't have a clue of what the title is or who the devil sings it!!!! Makes me MAD!!!! Most of the songs are from this old record we used to have when we were kids, and lost. But found it again like in the late 80s, and had it for a long while until I sold the record player (and all my records) in 1993. I recorded the records before I sold them, but I never thought to write down the song titles or who sang them. Back then, I never even thought there would ever be such a thing as downloadable music off the internet. Shoot! Back then I never even heard of the internet!!!

This phone not only finds songs, it is an ipod, a GPS, and an internet provider that even finds your bookmarks on your computer. I have a lot of things bookmarked that I don't even use. I keep them anyway. Never know when I'll need them. But anyway, I want this phone!! Or I at least want to know someone who has one!! Then I can find these dang songs that are driving me nuts trying to figure out who sings them and all. I know they still exist, I still hear them from time to time. I am never able to catch the names anyway. But nothing makes me crazy more than having a song I know I like, and cannot get it because I don't know who sings it or what the title is!! I remember I got lucky once when I found out who sings this one song that I loved but could not even think of who sang it. I had to call the radio station I last heard the song on, and ask them. It turned out to be Rasputin by Boney M. I had the song recorded on audio tape off the radio, but the announcer never revealed who sang that song, that I know of anyway. If he did ever say it, it was long since forgotten!! But that song drove me nuts for years because I didn't know anything about it except that I liked it, and it sounded GOOD!!!

We need gadgets like this that aren't phones. Like a wireless internet-type gadget that I can just plug in, play the song on my stereo and it'll tell me right off what the name of the song is, then I can at least try to find it myself.
