I just found out about this the other day and I'm pretty pumped about it. Google has a new SMS/TEXT service where they will send you info about Sports scores, Flight departure info, movie info, restaurants, etc......and it's FREE! I guess Yahoo offers something similar, but I don't have the details on that yet.
You send a text message to GOOGLE (466459), and wait ten seconds.
I just sent the message RED SOX to google and got back the score from their last game.
On a side note, you could also text "Mexican Restaurant 60614" and I get all the Mexican Restaurants in that zip code.
It's perfect for getting the scores when you're away from a computer, stuck in traffic, etc. I'm a nut and can't wait to get home for scores.
This is what they said on the Google Site (http://www.google.com/intl/en_us/mobile/sms/
