Google Text Messaging – Free and Quick searches from your cell phone
Google offers Google Mobile SMS, a free service to cell phone users to obtain various information from driving directions to currency conversion to local restaurant addresses by text message. What do you do? You send a text message to GOOGLE (that’s 466453) with the information you need. This is a text service, not a mobile internet service, so you don’t have to worry about ridiculously expensive data usage charges. The best part is that it’s SUPER fast. You won’t be waiting around for 10 minutes to get your answer.Here are some examples of how you could use it:
- If you want to find the name, address and phone number of Beanstalk Computing, simply text “Beanstalk Computing”
- If you want the weather simply text “weather san diego”
- If you wanted a stock quote, simply type “DDS” or the symbol
- If you wanted a definition you would text “define beanstalk”
- If you wanted to translate a word to a foreign languate type “translate beanstalk in Japanese”
- More examples of what you can do can be found here.
Product Spotlight: MagicJack: Unlimited phone calls for $20 per year
1. Plug any phone into magicJack.
2. Plug magicJack into any USB Port.
3. Pick up your phone and talk.
I just got my free 30-day trial for MagicJack and so far, it works perfectly for phone calls within the U.S. I instantly got myself a local 619 number and started making phone calls right away. $20 a year, plus $20 for the actual device. You can receive incoming calls and make outgoing calls. The quality of the line seems to be on a par with the POTS (plain old telephone system). The only thing I noticed is that hooking up a fax machine to the line does not work. How can you beat that?!?
Free Software Spotlight: CCleaner
CCleaner (The extra C stands for 'Crap') is a free system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :)"
