    Google’s 411 service’s killer app: handsfree calling when you don’t know the phone number of the place you’re trying to call. En-route and want to know if your favorite coffee shop is still open? Goog-411 and ask them.

    Eg:
    “Call Goog411”
    “Edmonton, Alberta”
    “Credo Coffee”
    (lookup + auto connect)
    “Hey, are you guys still open on the holiday Monday?”

    You’ve got to pull over to use most of the other apps that resolve business phone numbers.

    Uhh… pull over?
