867-5309? Forget Jenny.
You want Google.
Never miss a local story.
I recently discovered a new service offered by Google, free of charge. It's a text messaging service where the Internet powerhouse answers your basic questions.
The number is 46645 and it's easy to use.
You're already at dinner and you want to see a heart-warming coming-of-age tale? Just text "Slumdog Millionaire 95340" and you'll get the where and when. If you're not even sure which movie you want to see, just text "movie times 95340" and you'll get a list of choices.
Other options include weather, definitions, directions, currency conversions and unit conversions. If you're lost in a snowstorm in the Sierras, you can get a weather report ("Weather Oakhurst") and directions out ("Oakhurst CA to Merced CA").
You can also check your stocks, but I wouldn't recommend it right now.
