Tech Tip Tuesday: ChaCha

Do you ChaCha? No, not the dance the new service that is available via text or voice. Just text CHACHA (242242) and ask a question. Within a matter of minutes you will receive a response. The service is manned by real live people and not a computer and the results usually arrive to your cell phone in a matter of minutes.

I used the service last weekend to find the lowest gas prices in town. This weeekend, while traveling, I used the service to find out how far the nearest beach was to where we were staying for a tennis tournament.

Imagine the possibilities when debating with friends over who wrote the Declaration of Independence or who won the 2005 SuperBowl? There is no limit to the number of questions you can ask, and if you're lucky, you may even receive some fun facts.

To learn more about the service, you can visit the ChaCha site.
