Geek Tip: 1-800-GOOG-411 Now With Maps


A few months back Google introduced its 1-800-GOOG-411 service, which provides users with free business info. You just call or text the number (1-800-466-4411) ask for help and your answer is spoken back or text messaged back to you (just by saying text message), and the number you requested is automatically given to you free of charge. It's less expensive than 411 (cause it's free!) and is just as easy as the old school service.

Apparently, the GOOG-411 experience just got better: during your call to GOOG-411, just say "map it," and you'll get a text message with the details of your search plus a link to a map of your results right on your mobile phone.
