awesome stuff...

Noone seems to know about this...

http://www.google.com/sms/

Basically you send a cellphone sms message to "googl" (no e) with things like:

22152 weather

.. it'll message you back the weather for the zipcode 22152

1388 dulles technology drive herndon va to 82382 some street some city some state.

That'll message you back with directions on how to get from one place to another.

pizza 22152

Where to find pizza...

or even...

1-650-555-1212

that'll tell you where whoever has that # lives.

All of this information is available with a simple sms message. No firing up your web browser. No logging in. No links. No waiting.

Pretty f'n cool eh? AND NOONE KNOWS ABOUT IT! .. that's the most amazing part. Every person I've asked has been like "What's that?" .. and I show them and they're like "Wow..."

I've played with it before. When every SMS sent was $0.10, I didn't do much with it.

Now I can send 50 to not verizon without it costing me more. Still don't use it. :D Just fire up the web browser on the Treo..

Heh! I actually told Galen about that when I was out visiting you guys in August, since I myself had found out about it when a friend SMS'd it to me when we were all out to dinner. Cool and useful stuff. :>
