GTFW

June 20, 2003

Commenting on “Google attempting to avoid being another verb in the dictionary”, Techdirt observes that:

“I’ve never heard anyone use google as a verb in a case where they weren’t actually using Google to then do the search.”

Exactly.

When I tell someone to “Google something”, I don’t mean that they should wander off to Yahoo Search, Altavista, or Inktomi—I mean for them to go to Google and type in the search phrase.

Besides, it’s more warm and fuzzy than just telling them to STFW.
