Verizon SongID & Prince

5:30 PM -- Verizon gets a high-five for innovation with their SongID technology that records a song, then identifies it, even though they may not be the first to do so. The service is free and, of course, makes it easy for you to buy the song you just ID'd.

Prince is helping Verizon promote the service by making his new single available for download only through SongID. A clip of "Guitar," which sounds like the purple one's impression of Cheap Trick, is available on Verizon's page. I have a feeling you can also get SongID to pick up Prince-ish vibes from the waters of Lake Minnetonka or your local pancake spot.
