I am reading a book on Google and how to use it most efficiently. One nice feature is googletalk. This is a program that takes maybe a minute for my computer to download and allows me to talk long distance for free using my computer headset! Sheela and I used it last month while I was studying like crazy for the fourth year Emergency Medicine test. Really great feature and if we all get it, no more paying for a landline phone (a bit of a stretch I know, but it will work great while I am in Maine during November).
Also, Google has an online phonebook. You can look people up by just typing them in first name, last name, state, or you can type exactly this: rphonebook: gerald smith, mi which leads you to your long lost friend in Battle Creek! Unfortunately the information on Sheela and I is out of date so I'm not sure how current the other stuff is.
