Vazu - SMS from IE

I didn't really understand the hype about Vazu, the service that lets you text message your address book contacts and phone numbers culled from the web to your phone, but now that I've been using it for a few days, I've totally seen the light. Once you install Vazu, you can use it to SMS any text from Internet Explorer to your phone. I thought it sounded so silly, when normally you only need to jot a number or two, but I've been texting myself Mapquest directions and notes like text messages were free (note to self: better make sure that I'm not paying per message.) It's so much quicker than loading the content on a phone through a mobile browser or re-entering the information manually. If there's a lot of text, Vazu automatically breaks it up into multiple messages. Vazu promises that other applications will be compatible soon too, which will be great, kind of like a sticky notes program via SMS. I know it's possible to SMS yourself already, through various apps, but it's the quickness that's impressive, you don't even have to think about it.

Try it out soon, because it's free for now, but they'll be charging for it once it takes off. Vazu says it will work with any phone, and it works on my Sprint PCS Treo, and almost nothing ever does.
