      This service was introduced earlier this year as a way to access Google search results on your mobile phone. It's the equivalent of dialing 411, but it's free and really fast, and it pulls multiple listings like the ones you'd get from a search in Google local. Mobile phone users can get listings sent to their phone via SMS, including telephone numbers and full addresses. You can also be connected to a business for free.

      The entire service runs off voice-recognition technology. If that fails, you can dial in the name of the business you're looking for. The one thing still missing is residential listings, but otherwise it's a really handy service that's worth putting on your mobile phone's speed dial.
