Never pay for Directory Assitance on your cell phone again.
I know most people have smart phones but it can be time consuming to look up info on the internet from a PDA.
Google has a free 411 service set up: GOOG-411
I've tried it, it works well. Its a completely automated system and you don't get to speak to a live person so if the system doesn't understand you or there is too much back ground noise you may not get good results. I tested it with a "roebucks juice" in "torrance,ca" query and the results were accurate.
To apply this to real estate, it may be handy next time you need a local service contractor, i.e.- plumber, electrician, roofer, termite, carpenter, window repair etc., etc.
