Google Click-to-Call.

GoogleFilter: Introducing Google Click-to-Call. "Here's how it works: When you click the phone icon [on a Google ad], you can enter your phone number. Once you click 'Connect For Free,' Google calls the number you provided. When you pick up, you hear ringing on the other end as Google connects you to the other party. Then, chat away on our dime" (emphasis added). Here are a few screenshots (scroll down), but I can't actually find live examples. The reason being that Google, some say, is "only testing this service in designated areas of the United States." In addition, the Slashdoters have beat us to an insightful convo. Then again, don't most snarky MeFites see Google posts as completely passe. Nonetheless however, I think it is ripe for discussion (especially considering the privacy policy (both big and little) state that a third party will have access to your phone number).

Google adds very cool Q&A feature

Google adds very cool Q&A feature: What is the population of Texas? When was Jason Kottke born? When did Hunter S. Thompson die? Google says it works for "celebrities, countries of the world, the planets, the elements, electronics, movies, and anything else we've thought of so far".
