Google announced in their blog "...a free telephone service that lets you search for businesses by voice and get connected to those businesses for free. Just say 'map it', and you'll get a text message with the details of your search plus a link to a map of your results right on your mobile phone."

Implications - Innovations like this make it easier than ever for consumers on-the-go to get the information they need without having to find a computer. As technology continues to advance, people expect their phones and their personal devices to help make their lives easier rather than more complicated. Products of this nature fulfill that need and thus prove their value time and time again.
