I’ve updated Mixamail to access Google search results via e-mail.
Now, you can send an e-mail to email@example.com with a subject of “Google” and a body containing your query. You’ll get a reply within a few seconds (~20 seconds on my BlackBerry) with the top 8 search results along with the snippets.
It’s the snippets that contain the useful information, as far as I’m concerned. Just yesterday, I managed to find the show timings for Manmadan Ambu at the Ilford Cine World via a search on Mixamail. (Mixamail win, but the movie was a let down, given expectations.)
You don’t need to be registered to use this. So if you’re ever stuck with just e-mail access, just mail firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject “Google”.
PS: The code is on Github.
