Another Google Attack

Google is shocking. After the rumor that they will develop a new browser to compete with Microsoft's Internet Explorer (it's more than a rumor, since they have hired some cool person and they have bough their new domain), this time they showed up again with another two services, Google Print and Google SMS.

Google Print
Google Print puts the content of books where you can find it most easily; right in Google search results. Just do your usual searches on Google and whenever a book contains content that matches your search terms, Google will show that book in your search results. Click on the book title and you'll see the page of the book containing your search terms and other information about the book. Click on the "Buy this Book" link and you'll go straight to an online bookstore where you can purchase the book.

Google invites all publisher to publish their books on their web pages. They have prepared a web based program that lets book publishers of all sizes have their book content included in the main Google search results. Publishers send Google their books and Google scans them to add their content to your search results at no cost to the publisher.

Google SMS
Google SMS (Short Message Service) enables you to easily get precise answers to specialized queries from your mobile phone or device. Send your query as a text message and get phone book listings, dictionary definitions, product prices and more. Just text. No links. No web pages. Simply the answers you're looking to find.

Here is how to do it:
# Enter your query as a text message. See some sample queries.
# Send the message to the US shortcode 46645 (GOOGL on most phones).
# Receive a text message (or messages) with your results, usually within a minute. Results may be labeled as "1of3", "2of3", etc.
# To get Google SMS help info sent directly to your phone, send the word 'help' as a text message to 46645.

Get ready to get another shocking technology from Google in short time :)
