Tried Google's SMS?

Your probably aware of all of the million of services that Google now offer, but have you tried, or are you even are of SMS?

Tried Google's AJAX-Based SMS?

Your probably aware of all of the million of services that Google now offer, but have you tried, or are you even are of Google SMS ? To use this free service create a new text message from your mobile phone and key in 46645  in the "To" field with your question in the message field -  such as "Richmond Cinema" and you will recieve list of Cinema's in Richmond, or "The Break Up Richmond" and you'll get as a reply all the cinemas playing "The Break-Up" in Richmond - the world is your Oyster i.e. "Pizza San Francisco", "Wi Fi Oakland".  You can also convert you currency and even get directions to a destination from your current cell position - all clever stuff.

Ever notice how the best indicator of a company being mega-succesful is its name being used as a verb i.e. "fedex me the letter" - well I think Google is now so synonomous with search that no other search company often comes to mind.....guess I should have invested in that $100 public offering after all...
