Google 411: USA yellow pages & fast forward: 1-800-goog411

An acquainted (not remembering that I don't live in USA) mailed me this today:

My compliments to Google!

Here's a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800-goog411.  This is an awesome service from Google, and it's free -- great when you are on the road.

Don't waste your money on information calls and don't waste your time manually dialing the number.  I am driving along in my car and I need to call the golf course and I don't know the number.  I hit the speed dial for information that I have programmed: 1-800-goog411 (= 1-800-466-4411). The voice at the other end says, "City & State."  I say, "Garland ,  Texas"  He says, "Business, Name or Type of Service."  I say, "Firewheel Golf Course"  He says, "Connecting" and Firewheel answers the phone! How great is that?  This is nationwide and it is absolutely free!

Check this one for free long distance.
Includes international calls and other countries supported.
Although I haven't gone to another country to try it.

- fine,

but it does include a 10 seconds advert, and doesn't help you to first get the number.
