Google Does Directory Service

This one may be a stretch, but you never know. Google is now testing directory service, the voice kind, for phone users. Just dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) from any voice phone and speak your request. Google Voice Local Search, as it's called, is a voice-activated service that taps the same database used in Google Maps. It's a Google Labs project, so don't expect perfect service in all areas just yet.
