ASK And Ye Shall Receive

A PP reader Jochen, sent me a site that is described as a SMS mobile search engine. Let's call it more of a mobile trivia engine through SMS.

It's only available in Europe, so I haven't had a chance to play with it and see its function.

The service is called MyNuggets .

Did you ever have the answer to a question on the tip of your tongue and nobody around you knew either? Now you can ask your mobile phone.

Simply send an SMS containing the word ASK followed by your question to Nuggets and get back results likely to contain the answer from the Internet for free.

Here's how it works.

Q: So how does it work again?
A: 1. Create a new text message (SMS) and type ask. 2. Enter your question. 3. Send as a text message to 88600. After a few seconds, you get a reply with information nuggets dug up from the Web based on your questions

Let me know if you've tried it and what you think.
