Google’s Killing my favourite 411 service. Bastards.

By a long shot, better than Bell or Rogers–and they charge, I almost always default to using 1-800-goog-411 for my number hunting efforts. At least, I did until now. As of November 12th, it’s back to Bell and/or Rogers for me–Google’s punched the 411’s ticket. Damn shame, too–it was actually more accurate than that which I’m forced to pay for. Well, it was fun while it lasted. Gonna miss ya, Goog-411.

  1. Not sure what Rogers offers, but if you talk to the special needs folks at Bell you can get 411 for free. I’ve had it on my own lines for almost 11 years and even got it for my folks when I was living there.

    1. I’m pretty sure they offer that as well. It’s just a matter of actually being bothered to beat it out of them. I think, after I recover from my Bell fiasco, I just might investigate.

      Also: Thanks for dropping by. Mind if I ask how you landed here? I’m randomly curious about things like that.

  2. Sure. Blog stats landed me here. I noticed a decent number of visits coming from your domain and realized that you were more than likely the same James who’s been leaving comments. I’ve been lurking for a little, guess I decided to start commenting today.

    1. Okay, I’ll admit it–guilty.

      Well, welcome to this thing anyway, whatever it is. Hopefully you’ll stick around a while and maybe find something to be amused at. Or not.

Have an opinion?
