Tired of pressing options (4, 7, 2, 2) to get a LIVE person on the phone when dialing a large company? www.gethuman.com is a list of user tested numbers and/or options that fast track you to a human. Extremely helpful when you’re frustrated. 😉 (You can always just try pressing zero a few hundred times, or screaming, either sometimes will take you right to someone (or hang up on you).)
Stop calling 411 for $1 (or more) a call. Try 1-800-FREE-411. This free service, by Google, finds your listing and even offers to send a TXT message with the number. Here’s a demo: http://www.google.com/goog411/index.html

Send a text message to GOOGL (46645) like, “Chinese restaurants, Times Square” or “Weather 29649” or “Define plethora” or “directions from 29649 to Atlanta, GA” and you’ll get a text message right back.
Don’t forget about Jott.com. I emailed once already about this (http://www.digitaloffice.com/tips/?p=9) and it really is a hidden jewel. Dial Jott and it will send your transcribed chat to yourself or others. Easy for reminders!
