Phone Reference Goes Corporate
And from the “You’ve got to be kidding me” file comes askgod.com:
To capture all the information off the Net, all you need is the one thing you already have – Your Cell Phone. Put your stylus down, stop searching the streets for Wi-Fi spots and call ASK GOD. ASK GOD saves you the one thing you need and can’t ever buy – Your time.
In June of 2005, our company will allow you to ASK GOD. As our name implies, ASK GOD will supply you with every answer imaginable, twenty-four hours a day. Furthermore, our service does not rest on the Sabbath.
To use ASK GOD’s Phoneternet, all you need to do is call our toll-free number and, within seconds, our live angels will be able to answer any questions you may have. Our ASK GOD angels are trained web experts, giving callers instant access to any web-based information.
I mean, I knew library services were hot, but I didn’t know they were so hot that random people on the interwebs would try and sell them back to people as if they don’t already exist.
Edited to add: Apparently the creators of askgod.com are also responsible for this. Down with the pacisfists and the libraries! It takes all kinds, I guess.

I thought this was a joke until I actually went and looked at it. I don’t know what is worse, the hubris of the enterprise, or the fact that some people will actually pay for the service. That they are responsible for that other site, if true, is disturbing as well.
