This is priceless. Obviously with the army of lawyers Google now employs, someone convinced the marketing department to put this post up on the Official Google Blog explaining what is or is not a good use of the word Google. Basically, as long as you search on Google.com or use it to describe the company, you are in fine shape. So for example:
- Googling for my golf ball in the woods at Spooky Brook
- I googled for a missing sock in the washer
- Honey, have you googled my keys?
- I'm googling for love in the wrong places...
- A John Ford movie starring John Wayne called The Googlers
- Standing at the urinal googling for it...
- Googling in your closet for something to wear
- "Google up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane
- My friend K. Harper Googling for famous people whenever she travels to NYC from Toronto
- Googles the ketchup (inside family joke how the husband can never find anything in the fridge)
Of course any from 1-4 above would be a proper use if they were conducted on Google.com. In fact, Google might be the only way to find that missing sock in the washer machine, which I'm sure Google has plans to index next.
