A quick note to point out that 4info.net, the mobile (text messaging, mobile and non-mobile web search) and email search tool has enhanced some of their impressive services and added some new content. Via the 4info blog we learn that they’ve upgraded their movie listings (demo here) with info from the IMDB including:
+ IMDB User Ratings (w/web searches)
+ IMDB Movie Year (w/web searches)
+ IMDB Synopsis (w/web & WAP searches)
Also, 4info.net has enhanced the weather info they offer with:
+ Radar Image Added (on web)
+ Removed Day/Night Forecast
+ Sunrise/Sunset Times Added
+ Feels Like (if not the same as Actual Tempurature)
All content accessed on the web version (non-mobile version of 4info) can be sent to a mobile phone with just a click or two as a text message.
Finally, if you’re a fantasy basketball player, you can get the latest player stats. Just enter and search a players name.
Postscript: Here’s a 4info “Fast Fact” that I learned from the 4info Blog:
+ 73% of 4info.net queries are not “location” based as some might think. Interesting read.
+ Almost forgot, Matt Marshall from the Merc recently posted a look at 4info.net in the aritcle, “Hot idea attracts VCs’ cold cash“
