Google Fighting Verb Usage



SEW reports on Google’s attorney’s attempts to stop media using “google” as a verb.

According to the (hand addressed) letter sent to the Washington Post Google has come up with some examples or suggestions to linguistically aid us in the future. What is appropriate is “He ego-surfs on the Google search engine to see if he’s listed in the results.”, and inappropriate language is “He googles himself.”

Well they need to get on the phone to T-Mobile, as I spotted this at DFW airport…
