google (our favorite search everything company) has released a dial-up phone service for free to compete with the phone companies 411 information system.
dialing 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) from any phone will connect you to google’s 411 service. you can ask for a name of a business and the system will attempt to match you to the business (e.g. pizza). the connection to the business is free (aside from normal airtime charges if you are using a cell phone).
sounds really cool – looking for an opportunity to try it out. let me know if you have the chance and what you think about it…
