Use Google to get Flight Information on Your Phone

Google has unvieled a new addition to their Google SMS service that allows you to check the status of your U.S. flight by simply texting the flight number to GOOGLE (466453). Or, if you need to talk to a human, text the name of your airline to the same number and Google will text back the phone number to call.

Pretty nifty, especially if you're en route to the airport and need a quick update. They even have an interactive demo so you can practice before you leave.
