"Google" as a Verb

The previous post included many instances of "google" as a verb. I just want to make one thing perfectly clear:

I'm not using "google" as a generic term for "use a search engine."

I mean it very specifically, and I use the real deal: Google itself. Never, never have I tried to go google something over on Yahoo. Though occasionally, I will yahoo it. Sometimes you just like to do that little yodel.

But the point is, if I say I'm googling, then you know what I'm doing and where I've been. And so does Google. I've been to Google.

I don't mince trademarks.
