    Default CEO of Shazam said BlackBerry is late to the game on CNBC.

    What a joke from the CEO of Shazam , with Blackberry Sound Hound App and the Music Search App I can live without Shazam as a musician. Plus my searches show Sound Hound and Music Search App beats or equals Shazam .....So there Mr CEO of Shazam , we are not late !

    This is their way responding to sound hound. How lame. Even saw a thread earlier with some posters of very low post counts, one of them with one post, talking about how bad sound hound is and that after they downloaded the app onto their Z10 it caused a whole bunch of problems as well as reboots. Not saying it was Shazam's doing but the timing if this all is not so coincidental. It's pretty pathetic.

    Just like Netflix.....never used the revamped OS and still thinks of BlackBerry the way it was a few years ago.....
    Maybe he thinks "oh well...another Storm fail.... At least without that ridiculous massive button....a few months and it's gone..."

    I agree it would be nice to have a link in case he misinterpreted. What were his exact words?

    Maybe we should do some fact checking:

    1. It was the CTO not the CEO
    2. He's definitely not speaking about BBOS since he states that the new OS is better than the old one
    3. He throws out props to BlackBerry and Microsoft for doing something different

    I'll give him "late to the game" since we've all been waiting so long for BlackBerry to release a modern smartphone OS.

    This video shows an interview with Shazams CTO, not CEO, and he said that it is tough for Blackberry to come in so late in the game and commended both Blackberry and Windows Phone for doing a good job at being different. That doesn't sound that bad. It was his opinion and if he thinks Shazam should wait then so be it. Other developers have come out to support Blackberry users. That is what matters.

    Sorry, busy day today, so CTO or CEO mistake my apologies. But when the question came about Blackberry, he basically rolled his eyes. As a musician Sound Hound and Music Search App is great Music Search Apps and guess what BlackBerry is not late, I think Shazam is late coming to Blackberry.

    I have already made the switch from Shazam to SoundHound without looking back. Some of these "wait and see" companies might find someone else has come in and eaten their lunch on BB10 before they get off the pot. It seems to me that if a platform has any chance of survival at all, neglecting it is suicide for big players. If you leave a vacuum in a particular genre, someone else will fill it without competition from you. If they do a good enough job they could spread to your home platforms later and kick your **** with the $$ they made on BB10 while you twiddle your thumbs.

    Are you listening NetFlix?

    Oh come on Crackberry. I understand the need for profanity filters, but reasonable adults say "b u t t" to five year olds.

    It's called resting on your laurels. Has come back and bitten so many companies in the past. Sound hound is so much better than Shazam.

    The name SoundHound is even better than Shazam. It actually makes some sense.

    I used both Shazam and Soundhound on my iPhone, up until my iPhone went into the wash with my jeans, and I preferred Soundhound over Shazam. I found Soundhound did a better job in noisy environments and could even tell you the song name by singing it myself.

    Shazam is now a thing from the past for me and all my friends who have blackberry 10 now.
    We love soundhound and support it, if Shazam releases a bb10 native app I wouldn't even download it to check it out cause these ****ers don't deserve a single download hit since they didn't support us when our OS was a newborn.
    Same goes to all other app developers, if they don't make bb10 apps today someone is going to come take their profit and they are going to regret.
