Find what you're looking for with LiveSearch411

The wizards at Microsoft have come up with an information service that goes beyond a regular "411" call. LiveSearch411 can help you find stores, restaurants, and other businesses. In addition, they've got extras—stuff like weather forecasts, movie showtimes, that sort of thing.

To access this service, just dial 1-800-CALL-411 (1-800-225-5411) and follow the prompts. You can use your regular phone or your cell phone here, because most of the responses are spoken back to you, so you don't need SMS to benefit.

When we called, we had some serious problems with the voice recognition system, and had to repeat several of our requests multiple times, and even then didn't always get the results we were looking for. Needless to say, your mileage may vary.

You can get more information about this free service by visiting the LiveSearch411 website.
