I went back and looked at my past mobile 411 calls — and they all have been looking for business #s (mostly restaurants, theaters, etc.). I am not sure I agree with Paul ("Google Just Killed the U.S. Directory Assistance Business"), because eventually they have to find a way to monetize this.
I like Google’s commitment to giving a buncha smart people some time and resources to come up with new ideas. Not all will make it — in fact, most will fail. But I bet we see some big winners via the Labs eventually. Its decentralized decision making approach will be all the rage in 2012 . . .
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
