Game The System With Google

As many of us find out, calls to “information” sometimes get tagged with a rather staggering fee. Not all of us are blessed with a perfect memory or even access to a printed directory while out and about. Try this on for size… Call 1-800-GOOG-411. It’s a free call from any phone. Tell ’em the location and the business type, get an answer, get connected for free. You can even have the information text messaged to your phone or have a map sent, too. Cool! I can easily see folks using this service to beat long distance charges from their land lines…

Ham For Chanukah

 

I’m thinking that the Manhattan foodie store, Balducci’s, is a tad bit embarrassed. Thanks to NancyKay Shapiro’s blog for pointing out the fumbled marketing attempt to promote hams for Chanukah. Ham is not part of the Kosher diet maintained by observant Jews. Even those who do not keep Kosher try to avoid piggie goodness on the holidays. Balducci’s did apologize, though.
