    That would be cool if I couldn't pull up the Google app on my phone, search myself, and tap the number to dial... but, you know, for old people or someone with a shitty phone it's nice!

    I usually take care of that kind of thing before I decide to move thousands of pounds around the public at 70mph, but hey... that's likely just me!

    I know, right! The weird thing is, I have turn signals and brakes... so, in the event that happens, I can safely adapt.

    If I can get reception at my grandmother's place, I'm really not worried.

    I didn't realize a bluetooth headset would dial your phone for you without you having to look away from the road!

    My phone is usually in the glovebox plugged into the iPod adapter... so, I'd have to pull over to use it anyway!

    My phone is usually driving the car. So I would just tell it to pull the car over so I could call google.

    That's a whole eight more numbers to dial than regular 411..
    I'm too lazy for that.
    Unimpressed.

    You would rather pay the fee than dial 8 numbers?

    I used to work with a couple of the guys in the video.. there are a ton of voice apps like this you can dial, especially down in California where most of it is being developed and tested.

    These guys: http://www.tellme.com/ do some really interesting stuff as well.
