Apple is reportedly set to buy Shazam at a bargain basement price

Decades ago, if you heard a song and wanted to know who it was by, you basically had to hope against hope that you were with someone who had an encyclopaedic music knowledge, or that your ability to remember the melody would pay off later. Since the rise of smartphones, this task has been made immensely easier thanks to apps such as Shazam. Now, it appears that the invaluable music app has been eyed by tech giants Apple, who have reportedly made plans to purchase it for a surprisingly low price.

Unsurprising. The nature of capitalism is consolidation to eliminate competition.

BTW, Marvel has a "Captain Marvel" movie coming out ... she used to be Ms. Marvel, there was a male Marvel Captain Marvel, but not to be confused with Shazam! DC's Captain Marvel.

Ugh. Get me my lawyer.

I remember when Captain Marvel was the only one who could say "Shazam" to change into the superhero. His two companions had to say "Captain Marvel" to change. :)
