    Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-goog411 (1-800-466-4411). This is an awesome service from Google, and it's free -- great when you are on the road.

    Don't waste your money on information calls and don't waste your time manually dialing the number. I'm driving along in my car and I need to call the golf course and I don't know the number. I hit the speed dial for information that I have programmed.
    The voice at the other end says, "City & State." I say, " Garland , Texas ." He says, "Business, Name or Type of Service" I say, Firewheel Golf Course." He says, "Connecting" and Firewheel answers the phone. How great is that? This is nation wide and it is absolutely free!
    Watch
    this short clip for a quick demonstration.

    But it doesn't work for residential numbers.
