For you March Madness fans

If you follow college basketball you should consider signing up for 4INFO's NCAA Tournament Pass, which, in a nutshell, sends a text message (complete with score and seed information) to your cell phone whenever a tournament game ends and when an upset is likely to occur. And you can't beat the price: it's free, as in beer. If you don't want the results for all the tournament games you can sign up for individual team alerts, as well.

Signing up is quick and easy -- you can use the widget below or text message "tourney" to 44636 (4INFO) for the complete tournament pass, or text a team name with "alert" to the same short code (e.g. text "stanford alert" to 44636 and you'll receive Stanford end-of-half alerts and upset alerts for all tournament games in which Stanford plays, if any). Stopping the alerts is just as easy -- simply replying "stop" to any 4INFO alert will permanently remove it.

I've been using 4INFO for almost a year now, getting sports, news, weather, and stock information sent to my phone on a daily basis, and find the service reliable and indispensable, but the fact that I'm a 4INFO fan is probably obvious given the two 4INFO widgets in the right column of this page. In any case, give the service a try and let me know what you think.
