Where Do You Go To Find An Address or Phone Number?

Over the years the dynamic of how the average person goes about ordering a pizza, looking up the phone number for the doctor or City Hall has seemingly changed.

Just out of curiosity, how do you usually go about finding a phone number or getting information about something these days?

After thinking for a bit I had to put other as my wife and I still tend to ask friends or open the phone book. On a side note and to be honest, the majority of our number and information is looked up through the Internet these days...especially the name of that character on the show we watched that looked so familiar...but from where

I don't even know if I have a phone book in my house. I have some yellow pages bookmarks that I use to find numbers, names, adresses and postal codes. I find it more handy than searching anywhere else.

If I'm going to order products, services or look for an old friend which I forget to contact for a long time. My best choice would be the internet.

I voted for the Internet. I might say that Internet are very convenient to use and almost companies or individual businesses are using and sharing their information for others to know and find them easily. There are top sites that i always visit to find or locate a certain place such as google maps, superpages, tupalo and yellowpage.
