Canadians Have All the Answers

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, News Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor TORONTO, ON--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 29, 2007) - On January 1st 2007 Askipedia launched Canada's first question based informational premium text message service dubbed Text & Answer. Any Canadian with a cell phone can now access any information, from anywhere in the world. Askipedia's first official question; "What was the Jackson Five's first hit single?"

For just two dollars, users simply text message any question they want to 27587 (ASKUS) using their cell phone, and receive a personalized answer back in minutes.

While other text message services provide a specific service such as a joke or horoscope, Askipedia Text & Answer's customers can ask any question they can think of; from the score of the Super Bowl, to what is the meaning of life, even people who find themselves lost can get directions. Askipedia's history of questions indicates that users know this and that they take full advantage of it. 67% of Askipedia's customers are repeat customers and their questions have a huge range of topic.

"We don't want to be restrictive in anyway", says co-founder and President of Askipedia Chris Priest-Brown, "it's up to the customers to decide what they want to know. There are practically no questions that we will not answer."

Askipedia is run by Chris Priest-Brown and Joe DeClara whom employ a host of experts that research and answer the questions that are submitted in an average time of five minutes.

Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Joe DeClara says, "Our system is designed to receive questions, screen them against a database that then sends possible answers to our team of experts, who can accept the answer or change it as they see fit." /For further information: Visit www.askipedia.com/sms/ IN: ENTERTAINMENT, SOCIAL, TECHNOLOGY, TELECOMM, OTHER
