Even fed-up former Googlers who have migrated to Bing can't really get away from the search giant. "I google everything with Bing now," said commenter Azalp Yerbua in response to our post on Google's betrayal of its users. Yerbua has decided, like many others, that he or she doesn't approve of Google's moves of late, so our commenter will now "google" with Bing. With the use of google as a verb Yerbua reminds us, however, just how dominant the company is. Not only is Google the default search engine of choice for so many of us, it also runs our email accounts, or navigation systems, our Internet chat clients, etc. Google is everywhere! Even in our lexicon.
