    If you’re a fan of Google’s voice-powered directory, 1-800-GOOG-411, you have a little more than a month to enjoy its many splendors; the service is going dark on November 12.

    Back in 2007, Google launched GOOG-411 to help users easily call businesses around the U.S. and Canada via voice recognition.

    According to the Google Blog, this was the first such service Google offered and has laid the groundwork for a ton of its more sophisticated, smartphone-oriented fare  such as voice search, voice input and voice actions.
