Microsoft Recite – Voice Notes as a Service

Microsoft just announced a new service intended for mobile devices, called Recite. In short, it allows people to record voice notes using their mobile devices, and then use voice again to search against saved “notes”, then Recite will “recite” the identified note. More details can be found on the Recite blog site.
