Google SMS

Nothing like a free service from google. After playing around with it for a day or two I can say that Google SMS rocks! I'm impressed at the simplicity of the interface and its effectiveness in getting you all the information you need. And best of all its FREE!! Well free on google's end, however standard text messaging fees apply.

My hat is off to you Google, your benevolence is welcomed!

4INFO (shortcode 44636) has a similar text message offering, but provides several additional services that Google does not: sports scores ("packers" "nfl"), fantasy stats ("brett favre" "priest holmes"), flight times ("swa san jose san diego") and a beta version of mobile download search. All these services can be accessed via SMS (44636), WAP at http://wap.4INFO.net , or email to search@4INFO.net.

Why 4INFO instead of Google?
“When asked recently for the address of a trendy downtown Manhattan club called Butter, both 4Info and Yahoo! located it on the first try. But Google sent back results better suited to baking.”
