Apple announced on Monday that it purchased the song identification service Shazam.
Here’s how you can find your Siri music history.
Bryan Chaffin and Dave Hamilton join Jeff Gamet to talk about the EU’s investigation into Apple’s planned Shazam purchase along with Amazon Key expanding to cars. They also mangle a few metaphors and dive into investigation theater.
While acknowledging the two companies offer complementary services (music streaming and music identification), the EC identified two areas of concern anyway, but neither stand up to reason.
One source puts the price of the acquisition around US$401 million, although Shazam was once valued at US$1 billion dollars.
