Tell Me All About It

Tell Me at (800) 555-TELL delivers all sorts of useful information rolled up into a nifty voice-recognition system. Say "news center" for business or sports news, "weather" for your local weather and forecast, or "entertainment" for soap opera updates, horoscopes, and a blackjack game. The service is particularly useful for a quick fix of regional information such as movie times and traffic reports. The call is free, and the amount of advertising is minimal.

    Does anyone know who runs this number? I’ve used this number for years and want to know who is behind such a useful number.

    TellMe Networks. I gather that the service is primarily for showcasing for the company’s interactive voice response services, which it makes available to other corporations.
