Out on the town with no where to go? We're loving Google text. Tap the name of your bar or restaurant followed by the city name and text to GOOGLE / 466453 and mini-seconds later you get the address and telephone back in an SMS message. Not too sure where to go but fancy a little French action - just type 'French restaurant' and your post code and voila(!) : a list of local saucy establishments.
