Don’t be caught without a phone number or address while you’re driving! You can’t find the restaurant where you’re supposed to be meeting your best friend or biggest client, nor do you have their telephone number. Don’t panic.
Keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road and use Google’s information number (800-466-4411) (store this number right now in your mobile phone!). Provide the name of the business (or type of business) you’re looking for in the U.S. or Canada, and the automated operator provides the address and phone number and can even connect you directly. This service is great when you’re on the road and need to find information about a restaurant or hotel.
UPDATE: Google has since removed their GOOG411 service.
