A Band May Be Known By Its Song

How many times have you heard a song on TV that you'd love to own, but you don't know the first thing about it? You don't know the artist. You don't know the lyrics. If you're like me, you can't carry a tune either. That means your friend, the music buff, can't even help you.

Now imagine having a button on your remote with a musical note on it. Just press that musical note anytime a song is playing on TV. Series, specials, movies or commercials. It doesn't matter. As soon as you press that little button, song info appears on the bottom of your screen (including lyrics if you like karaoke). And when you click the $ button on your remote, you buy and download that song directly to your iPod.

Let's take this concept a little further. You're watching "Alkaline Trio" perform on Letterman. Want to buy that performance? You can download that segment of Letterman to your Video iPod simply by pressing those two small buttons on your remote.

Who knows. Your video iPod may even be your remote in two years.
