Did you know you can text Google while you're out an about and they'll text back with what you're looking for? Whether it's a map, a zip code, movie times or the number for closest Wal-Mart, they'll send you a text back with the information in seconds. Ben showed it to me last night at the Fields' house - I tried it today and swore I would tell everyone I could about it. Here you go - enjoy!
1. Start a new text message and type in your search query

2. Send the message to the number "46645" (GOOGL)

3. You'll receive text message(s) with results
Hit this page for full details of all of the commands you can send and so much more. Love it!

So great! I've used this sparingly for some time. Came in handy tonight though when Alli Hibb asked what the capital of South Carolina is. Thanks Google for Columbia. Alli won her bet.
