Free Text Help from Google

I hate phonebooks. I love Google.

I’ve been using Google 411 since I moved to DC—a free 411 service which also sends a text to your phone with all the pertinent information about your listing (phone number, address and mobile map).

Today I discovered a whole new world of Google text help that I can’t wait to try out. Ryan Swigert gives some tips:

Text: pizza 45202 to find out the pizza restaurants in that zip code.

2. Miss the game? Text: score reds to find out the latest score for that sports team.

3. Playing the market? Text: stock TIF to find out the latest price for that stock.

4. Going on a trip? Text: weather boston to find out the week’s forecast for that city.

5. Someone stump you in Scrabble? Text: define prestidigitator to find out the definition for that word.

Awesome!
