Who Ya Gonna Call? …Google?

Posted: April 17, 2007 by jgrantmarshall in Uncategorized

Forget calling Ghostbusters (anyone alive in 1984 probably remembers Ray Parker Jr’s Ghostbusters theme song), the next time you need to find a phone number or address, call Google!  The famous search engine now as a free 411 service.  Simpy dial 1-800-GOOG411 (1-800-466-4411) and use the voice recognition prompts to quickly find the business number &/or address you desire.  Additionally, for mobile users, you can have Google send an SMS text message so that you have the info on the screen of your phone.  I tested a couple of obscure local businesses and Google correctly connected me each time!  I would love to see the SMS message sent integrated with Google maps… but that may be more info than most users would need.  Try it out and let me know what you think about this service!
