LoL.shutting down google? better shut down MPAA or p2p sharing
You can't disconnect Google for this reason; people might start switching their search engine to "Yahoo". "Yahoo" makes such a lousy verb. The word lives and dies as an interjection! That said, you will always be able to "Google" something, but you'll never be able to "Yahoo" something.
Hmmm....Still works for advertising though:
"Can't find that important item and don't know what to do?.....Just Yahoo!"
Strangely enough none of the people I know actually use this; we always end up saying 'search for it' or 'search this' ..... Google as a 'word' as such isn't important frankly, although many use Google to do just that.
Listen,you have to "Google" for porn. That's just the way it is, and that's the way it will always be. You can in no way "Yahoo" for porn. Plus, if you say, "I'm going to "search" for porn, it really doesn't come off as obscene enough..After all, "Google" does rhyme quite well with, "oogle"**.
(**) Do you think that's where "Google" came from, "oogle" contracted with another word? I'd "Yahoo" it, but frankly I simply don't care enough to do an "internet search" to find out.
Yeah right, that sounds like your spurs would get in the way of trying to type with your feet......:rolleyes: .,...Yaaaa- Whoooooooo........(?)
Sure, it'll simply be some minor panic and crisis everywhere.
I think to conceal what you actually are looking for ....... it will be better to say 'Google for oogle' ? But according to urban dictionary 'Oogles' are street rats, they are the ICP kids, the tweekers on bikes, the 15 year olds who runaway cause they think it's cool, not cause their lives at home weren't working out.
Beside saying 'Yahoo' for porn would mean almost everyone in the neighborhood will know what you are upto.
Just dogpile,com it and be done
I agree with the people that hopefully Google can put MPAA in it's place. I don't know what they're thinking taking Google on. When a company is such a trademark that their title is synonymous with an action (Instead of 'Search for it on the internet' it's 'Google it'), they're a bit out of your league.
I almost hope they do try something, I can't see Google taking that well.
Well Arch, you seem to have fallen into a contemporary information trap. If I want the definition a a word, I rely on trusted sources such as, "Merriam Webster", or perhaps, "Random House", not some transient BS cooked up by a bunch of people that shouldn't matter, for and about people that shouldn't matter.
That's like asking "Snookie" for advice about brain surgery.
(Incidentally, "google" has been added to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, as a transitive verb. It's right between "goofy" and "googly-eyed". Doubtless a place of summary distinction).
Problem is, the MPAA owns more senators.
