If you’re like me, you live your
life in a hurry. You analyze the cars in front of you at red lights and you
make an educated guess as to which column of cars will pull out first to give

like us don’t have time to surf the web for a phone number or actually use an
analog phone book, no matter what color its pages are. OH, if I ever catch the

In case you haven’t heard, Google
has a new FREE 411 service! 1-800-GOOG-411 is what you need to enter into the
“Contact” info on your mobile phone. Set a speed dial to it. Its worth it.
You simply say the city, state, and listing that you’re interested in. When
they respond, they’ll connect you for free.
Wait, there’s more! You can also
say “Text it” or “Map it” and Google will send a text paragraph of info to you
about the listing, or a link to a Google-map of the area around the listing.
