I’m surprised more people aren’t using Google’s Short Messaging Service (SMS). I love it.
You basically take any phone with text message capability and send a query to the number "46645" (GOOGL). They message back your search results, usually within a minute, and are text-based so they’re easy to read. I usually use it for local listings when I’m away from my pc, definitions, product info, blog info., etc.
It’s so much better than using the web application on my phone (which sucks, btw). Of course, this could get pricey for people who don’t have a flat-rate text messaging plan.
