A Kick-Ass Information Service

Google has done it again.

Google’s free 1-800-GOOG-411 information service simply kicks ass. Just dial the number, say the business name you are seeking, state your city and state name, and voila, Google serves up the info. I’ve used the service several times from my car, and it’s come through every time. The system is entirely voice-recognition based, and it works extremely well. The best part of all: you don’t have to talk with a monotone-voiced, unhappy telephone operator. It’s only for businesses at this point, but I already know where my friends live anyway, so no worries.
