Thought — Yahoo! debuts audio search. Yawn, boring news.
And irrelevant service, in a way. I mean, sure, if you need to find Britney Spears’ Toxic song in the disc store, the best way to do so is to enter Britney Spears Toxic in the search box. But in this case, you don’t really need the search engine because you already know what you’re looking for.
What I would want to see as a consumer is something like: I sing or hum the music in the micro — because I don’t know the title, and possibly not even the author — and the engine returns the top 10 most relevant matches. Now that would be search. Contact me if you are interested in starting this with me.
