Technology News: Google's Awesome App Brings You Free 411

I may be the last person on the planet to have discovered this but my much hipper and far more tech savvy friend Laura just tipped me off:

Man, you've gotta love Google.

Tired of paying anywhere from one to five dollars (depending on your phone and service plan) anytime you need to dial information?

And whether you can't find it online or in the Yellow Pages (a.k.a. those huge, cumbersome, tree killing phone books that are outdated as soon as they land on your stoop and weigh as much as four J.C. Penney catalogs) or even worse-- you're stuck driving and pull over in frustration because you honestly have no idea how to find the place you've failed to MapQuest in a way that makes sense-- Google has you covered with 1-800-GOOG-411 or 1-800-4664-411.

Using voice activation, the ability to receive the listing as a text message as well as sending a map to any internet enabled phone-- it's information when you need it and yes, it's totally free. Check it out in the video below and to learn more, click here to view the webpage.
