Google SMS is pretty amazing. I saw it recently and made a note to myself that I had to check it out, finally had a chance this afternoon.
You can send a text message to GOOGL (46645) with a request for information, and you’ll get a text back in a matter of moments.
My first test was for driving directions from Reagan National airport to my home. I entered “From DCA to [Street Address City State]” and I had turn by turn directions in seconds.
Then I asked it for a definition, sending “define blog”
Final test, how what is the population of Virginia? “virginia population”
Verdict: very cool.
