What's the 411?

Google is the 411.

To try this service, just dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) from any phone.

Check out the page, there's little to it. I don't have much to add, except that this is yet another place for Google to pimp their "sponsored results". And, since it won't cost $1.25 (What I believe verizon wireless charges for 411Connect) a shot and has the Google brand attached, I bet people will use it. As always, quality of results is king, but I had no problem googling my place of business - I just programmed that number into my cell phone.

NB: ONLY FOR BUSINESSES. Not White Pages searching. Bummer.

Verizon's gotta be cranky.
