Google SMS

The new Google SMS service is definitely worth a try. I use a Treo with a web browser but it's so slow that I sometimes end up calling 411 anyway if I'm in a hurry. With Google SMS, the results came through in less than a minute. All you do is text a message to 46645 and you can get business listings, product prices, dictionary definitions, calculations, and even do simple google queries by adding a "g" before the search term. It's not hard to stump, though, I didn't get results when I tried to find out the zip code of the town I was in. I did get a message saying that driving directions were not available yet. Movie listings would be great too, and I bet it's in the works.

Google Print - search through books.
