Google Answers is a live question/ answer system. Ask anything that's on your mind, from business research to philosophy, to "what's the title of this book". Attach an answer price from US-$2 to $200. There's a listing fee of $0.50, but except for that the money can be completely refunded if you're not satisfied with an answer. But that's unlikely to happen, since 500 expert researchers world-wide do their best to give high-quality answers!
