Google by ID
Google has introduced a search by number facility:
Parcel tracking IDs, patents and other specialised numbers can be entered into Google's search box for quick access to information about them. For example, typing "fedex" followed by a space and a FedEx tracking number will return the latest information on your package.
(Found via the Google Weblog)
Google's also taking suggestions for other number-based quick searches. ISBN would be top of my list for now.
