Obsession: ChaCha

August 28, 2008

I heard about this on NPR last week. ChaCha is kind of like a search engine for your phone. All you do is text a question to CHACHA (242242) and real live people search online for the most accurate answer to your question.

My first question was: “What flowers are in season in Houston for an October wedding?”

Answer: “For a fall wedding, pick from these flowers to use: aster, chrysanthemum, dahlia, marigold, static and zinnia.”

It’s really helpful because of the human element, and I don’t have to wade through a bunch of results to find what I need. It’s free except for your phone plan’s text messaging rate.

Try it!

    From Scott:

    My family uses a similar service, but they call it Scoogle. Basically, they call, text, or email me and I google for the answer. It’s pretty sweet, you should try it out sometime.
