I was watching David Pogue's TED talk recently and was reminded of a service I use frequently but have never mentioned here. Google-411. A free service that works like a regular information.
- Call 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-44110).
- State what you are looking for: donuts
- State the city and state
You're given several choices and then the option to connect. It hasn't let me down yet.
It's great unless you are like me and often forget within seconds the address given on one of these calls. Pouge came to my rescue and also shared another trick. Google SMS.
- Text Google (46645)
- In the body of your text state something like Donuts 80241.
- Send your text
Oh so handy!!
