Find Pubs By Text Message.

strangeway3v.jpg imageNow this is absolutely brilliant. TheReg is reporting of a new service from the makers of the Good Pub Guide, a directory of drinking establishments in the UK. For just 50 pence (about 88 cents) you can text the service with the message “GOODPUB,” and it will immediately respond with the location of the nearest bar. And if you've got a nice WAP-capable display, you can even get a map. The service uses the iTAGG system that triangulates your location down to the closest cell, so while it might not be 100% accurate it'll get you pretty close.
