Usually some internet CD audio database.  They do things like compare
disc IDs, track lengths, or some type of checksumming, to try and figure
out what disc you're playing, then pull a track list out of their
database.  Sometimes it's even completely wrong with commercial discs.

Often it's correct, with minor annoying faults.  e.g. Since the database
is made up from user-submissions, typing errors creep in, plus you have
users who type in wrong data, either through ignorance or trying to be a
deliberate pain.

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
