Google, WHY YOU DO THIS?

Saaaay, remember when I mentioned the awesomest of not-smartphones, made more awesomer by Google SMS Search?

Well…ummm…

Google SMS not working anymore?

Ironic, just four days after I discovered it and FINALLY figured out how to look up movie times on it, it gets the axe! щ(ಥДಥщ)

Btw, some commenters in the thread mentioned 4info, which I am playing with. Their SMS syntax doesn’t seem to be well documented, but from what I understand…

(for weather info with 4 day forecast–replace zip code with your zip code)

w zip code

(for movie times)

m zip code

(for business locations, location can be city, state or zip code)

d store name location

(Movie times hasn’t worked for me yet and there doesn’t seem to be anything for directions.)

Btw #2, Dear Microsoft/Apple/Yahoo, now is your chance! Take Google SMS’s throne! ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)
