Over the summer, I wrote about a money hack that would save money when you find yourself tempted to dial information. Free 411 (a service I never used), and Google 411, a service that I used so often it was on speed dial.
Well on Oct 8th…Google announced they will be shutting down the 411 service (effective Nov 12th) to focus their attention on more voice recognition initiatives. Sigh….
Maybe this is a good thing…but I’ve gotten used to Goog411 and certainly have no plans of using a paid information service EVER again! Google has a free search app for smart phones which may do the trick, but if not, I’ll be forced to look for an alternative.
What about you? Do you use Google411? Have an alternate suggestion?
