What does "google" mean to you?
Google's in the dictionary, and they don't like it (or at least their trademark lawyer doesn't like it). I see their point; they don't want to be the next example of a company losing its trademark protection because their name became synonymous with their category. What do you think? When you use google as a verb, are you referring to Google or using the term as a generic term for Internet search?
Contrast the Google story with Digg and Furl, which encourage the use of their names as verbs. Bad for the trademark, good for promotion?
