Google is the world leader among search engines and even Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has conceded Google's won the search game.
But most people don't think of Google as an offline information service - until they try GOOG 411. Canadians now have their chance to experience GOOG 411. Not French Canadians, though. Google has launched GOOG 411 in the Canadian market only in English.
Canadians can dial 1-800-GOOG-411 to connect to a computer that's armed with voice recognition software software.
The automated voice will ask for city and province. A voice menu will assist users by finding the information they're looking for.
Users can ask for directions to a business or location, phone numbers, or receive a voice spoken text message about the business or restaurant that they're researching.
