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.

Alot like shazam in the UK, except that's done on mobiles by calling 2580, they then send the name/title and can even send a ringtone... apparently... :p

I actuely thought about creating a site like that with the same concept a while ago but i figured that i don't know enough about voice recognition so i left it alone. :)

I doubt this will really succeed. Doesn't seem to work for most people ...
