Say goodbye to 411 charges

And say hello Goog 411

My brother made me aware of a new free business information service provide by Google. 

I actually used this over that last couple of days shopping for my kids and having to hunt down the elusive Pink Nintendo DS.  Pretty convenient especially if you are driving.

One humorous tid bit is the polling sound seems to be someone muttering (boodoop, boodoop, boodoop, boodoop, boodoop, boodoop, boodoop)  Pretty hilarious when you first hear it, then it starts to get annoying.

    I am a big fan of Goog411 and have used it a lot with great results. They have a voice UI. I usually roll my eyes in the direction of Voice applications but for me it works well and quickly.

    I love the way it connects me to the person I am calling and can optionally send an SMS with the contact details.
