Free information from Google

Here is something you may want to have and use.  I still remember when the telephone company charged me $1.50 to get a phone number from information and how I used to use Tellme for similar types of services.   Just leave it up to Google to come up with something like this.

Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-GOOG411. This is an awesome service from Google, and it's free -- great when you are on the road. 

The voice at the other end says, "City & State." I say, " Garland , Texas ." He says, "Business, Name or Type of Service." I say, Firewheel Golf Course." He says, "Connecting" and Firewheel answers the phone.  This is nationwide and it is absolutely free.  Click on the link and watch the short clip for a quick demonstration:

What this really makes me wonder is how quickly companies like Google are coming closer and closer to being our service providers of choice.  Today I can search, chat, email and get all my preferred news from Google.  Now I can use telephony to get real time information.  How soon will it be before I am paying them for basic TV and phone service?

  • This first service from Google will soon be extended by much more. Voice solutions are moving more and more into the netword, so SaaS works.

    And yes, we are all waiting for some kind of paid subscription .-(

    No, I really think that services like this will be paid be some ads instead of user payments.
