Google Voice Local Search

Google Voice Local Search (né Google 411) might be the most useful Google tool yet:

To use it, just call:

1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411)

I've only done one search, but it was able to accurately decipher my request even on my sketchy IP phone. I'm going to try it out as my new standard 411 service for both home and on my mobile.

No more furiously typing searches into Google Maps on my Blackberry at red lights -- a shameful practice for sure, but one that I suspect will only become more common with the release of the iPhone in June. So, if Google Voice Local Search works as good as I think it will, I will only have to defend against those folks and not be one myself. Yay!
