Yeah, that’s right folks. The company that prides itself on it’s mantra of “do no evil” now wants to control how you use the Google term. As you may or may not know, the verb “google” has now entered Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. Google is not at all happy about this, and does not want you to use the term in this manner. So instead of “I googled that chick” you’re supposed to say something along the lines of “I performed a Google search to find some information about that woman”. Good god, I think they should lighten up, everyone using Google as a verb is giving them free advertising.
