Check This out!!!! No more 411 charges!!!!

Google Launches Free 411 Service

Google has a new product in Google Labs called Goog-411 - a free telephone based information service that could eventually end all 411 charges. About 2.6 billion 411 calls are made in the U.S. each year, and it is a $7 billion a year business.

Goog-411 can be accessed by dialing 1-800-GOOG-411. The product is completely automated and there is no way to talk to a human for additional or clarifying information. You tell it your city and state, and then ask for a specific business or business category. For example, you can say "Giovanni's Pizzeria" or just "pizza".

You can get connected to the business, free of charge, and you can get the details by SMS if you’re using a mobile phone. Just say "text message".

GOOG-411 is using Google’s normal local business information available on Google Maps and elsewhere.

Washington Post tries to associate forged letter with Iraq-Niger-Uranium Intelligence

How Bogus Letter Became a Case for War -

I wrote a short reply to this article, but I am certain no one will read it. There are 29 pages of Netkooks calling for Bush/Cheney/Rove impeachment before me.

Oh well, here is what I wrote:

Yet another outrage from the Washington Post. The intelligence that led the British to conclude that Iraq DID attempt to obtain yellowcake uranium from Niger had nothing to do with these forgeries. To this day, The British STILL stand by the their conclusions. However, your phony story still fits the BUSH LIED! template, and helps you support the thesis that Bush waged an "immoral" unwise war against a phantom threat. (Netkooks, repeat after me: Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 ...) Strangely, Bush's record on honesty and telling the truth is remarkably clean, despite the mindless throngs that think if they repeat the refrain often enough, it becomes part of the national consciousness. It is unfair to peg these so-call 16 words in the State of the Union as the sole basis of labeling the President a liar. I suspect you are rehashing this forgery story to lend credibility to the REAL liar, Joe Wilson, who did such a bang-up "pool-side" intelligence report for the CIA, for which Congress' own Intelligence Committee identified him as the Kerry campaigner liar-hack he truly is.
