Googling a Phone Number… tracking number… etc…

So the Google Web Log has an interesting article about how you can google tracking numbers and it will show up the information about your item. Pretty neat functionality for when you have a number and nothing more.
However, try putting in your phone number, if it’s not a cell phone or you don’t have it unlisted, boom, someone now has a map to your house and your address. Kind of creepy hmm? Yeah, but it’s all out there :-

  1. Yeah, there are many books and articles on how to use Google to find almost any type of information. Most of them require the Google SDK, however, but it’s still there. Pretty freaky, huh? Oh, and I know where you live… 😀
