CD DB ID OK

Steve Scherf, VP of Architecture/Service Development talked about Gracenote’s inner workings when it helps identify the tracks on every CD in the world. Basically there is a big Oracle database in back and tight bundle of C code in front that can identify your CD table of contents in a few seconds. As an added plus they don’t keep track of who you are.
