This Web site can name that tune

Do you ever find yourself humming a song whose title, to your frustration, you don't know or can't remember? New search Web site Midomi is designed to actually identify that song for you in as little as 10 seconds.

Launching in beta mode on Friday, Midomi allows people to search for a song by singing, humming or whistling a bit of the tune. The site then offers search results that include commercially recorded tracks or versions of the song recorded by others who have used the site. The technology also lets people listen to the exact section of each of the results that matched their voice sample.

Here in Europe, there are some cell phone providers that offer that service. Call a service number, point your phone in the general direction of the sound source, and the friendly database will tell you the name of the tune, after which your phone is debited with a service fee.
