"Tip of the Week" - Ask ChaCha
I was at my husband's firehouse the other day and the crew was fighting over the answer to the following question: "How many countries in the world?" My first inclination was to go to the computer and google but then the youngest member of the crew said, "I'll ask ChaCha."
I thought ChaCha was an elf who lived in the radiator or something. Next thing I know he's dialing a number on his blackberry and he asks whoever picked up "How many countries in the world?" Then he hangs up. Within one minute he gets a text message saying they are working on the answer. One minute later he gets another text message with a detailed answer.
OK. Who is 'cha cha?'
ChaCha is like having a smart friend you can call or text for answers on your cell phone anytime for free! ChaCha works with virtually every provider and allows people with any mobile phone device - from basic flip phones to advanced smart phone - to ask any question in conversational English and receive an accurate answer as a text message in just a few minutes.
What's your question?
Simply text your question to 24224 (spells 'ChaCha') or call 1-800-2ChaCha (800-224-2242) from your mobile phone and ask any question. What are you waiting for? Ask away!
Here is a demo of how ChaCha works.
You may wonder why you would need ChaCha if you have a smart phone and internet access. Because if you are in a rush, you are not looking for a link, you are looking for an answer. Makes sense to me. And you can ask a question, get on with business and they'll get your answer for you.
Check it out and let me know how you like it.
Oh, there is no question too stupid. Trust me, ChaCha answers anything. :-)
