google-mobile.jpgNeed a map? It's just a phone call away. A few months ago, Google launched 1-800-GOOG-411, a free telephone service that lets you search for businesses by voice and get connected to those businesses for free. Now, when you're on your call to GOOG-411, just say "map it." In short order you'll get a text message with the details of your search, plus a link to a map of your results, right on your mobile phone. The Google goodness just keeps on coming.
