New Web service sends gas-price updates, traffic alerts, baseball scores, and more to your cell phone or inbox. The free service currently offers about a dozen alert choices, including a “free form” alert that lets you send yourself a reminder or any other tidbit of information at a designated time.

The most practical alerts for business users include gas prices, wake-up calls, traffic alerts, and flight/hotel price searches. It’s a snap to set these up via the site, which is also where you register for your account and enable message receipt via phone and/or e-mail. (Note that your carrier’s standard SMS rates apply if you opt for alerts via text message.)

Though technically in beta, looks plenty polished already. Definitely a service worth checking out.
