I was out for a quick walk to take a break from coding tonight when I saw the 1-800-GOOG-411 billboard. I couldn't resist trying it out, so I dialed the number and said 'San Francisco, California' when it asked for my location. When it asked what I was looking for I said 'beer'.
There was about five seconds of computing noise (you know, like in the movies), and it said 'Piercing - is that what you were looking for?'. I chuckled briefly and said 'go back', and repeated my query. 'Pier - is that what you were looking for?'. On the third query I got 'Theatre'.
Judging from the responses to my query, it's obvious that this service was tested by someone other than the engineers
