If ‘google’ is now officially a verb…

…when used as such it should not be capitalized, correct? Does anyone know if it has made it into a dictionary yet as a verb?

  1. Well, Google itself says “yes”:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_(verb)
    They say “google” and that it can be either case.
    It was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary on June 15, 2006,[3] and to the eleventh edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in July 2006.[4] The first recorded usage of google used as a verb was on July 8, 1998, by Google founder Larry Page himself, who wrote on a mailing list: “Have fun and keep googling!”[5]
    Googling has been good to me lately, putting my links up top or nearby in a relevant quantum subject search:

    Wow! That’s pretty cool, actually. So not only did Larry take part in the founding of one of the most iconic companies in the history of the world, he invented a new verb! Thanks for the links.
