I learned about “Cha-Cha” from my family — who are all obsessed with it. It’s actually become a verb around the Forsberg household. Some of you may know of it and use it often, if you don’t… you will now!
I thought Google text messages were a great idea when I learned about them a couple of years ago. You can text basic words to g-o-o-g-l-e and instantly get back results for no charge besides the cost of a text message. I travel a lot for work, so some google texts that I used to send a lot were:
“weather [zip code]”
“[MN sports team] score”
“Pizza delivery [zip code]”
… just to name a few.
Cha-Cha takes this to the next level. It works the same way as Google text, but you can ask anything because rather than going to a computer driven search engine, your text messages are actually going to a person who is sitting at their computer and will research the answer for you. This way, you don’t just get a link or general information — you can actually get exactly the answer you need. I haven’t ever used this in a time of dire need or panic, but it’s a fun way to settle debates, fill-in idle time or, just remember the name of a movie that’s on the tip of your tongue! Here are some text questions and answers from cha-cha.
