Apple is acquiring music recognition app Shazam

Apple is reportedly in talks to buy perhaps my favorite music app ever created, Shazam, for close to $400 million.

Sources tell us that the company is close to acquiring Shazam, the popular app that lets people identify any song, TV show, film or advert in seconds, by listening to an audio clip or (in the case of, say, an ad) a visual fragment, and then takes you to content relevant to that search.
