Google (SMS) Short Message Service - you can text GOOGLE to do translations and more!

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Every day, we tell our children “Try to learn something new every day.”


And yesterday, I learned something new!

Last night, gratitude to a dear friend, I found out that you can text to GOOGLE (466453) and get the phone number and address of my local pizza store, just a text message, “pizza”, to GOOGLE.
I didn’t even have to tell GOOGLE where I was!


Technology always amazes me. I’m still at awe at how Microsoft Word knows that I spelled something wrong – it even knows that I wrote a fragmented sentence! One day, I just need to touch the screen and it’ll probably write an entire page of thoughts and ideas!

So I’m having fun with this new discovery!

(Just a warning, make sure you have unlimited text package from your mobile provider, because it can be addicting!)



Here are some fun information!

Definition…………………..….define pigwidgeon
Flights……………………….....flight co123
Movies…………………….......movie new york
Stocks………………………...stock DECK (stock symbol for UGGS)
Translation…………………..…translate hungry in Spanish
