Here's a question I should ask Google .... "What did 'Google' mean 30,
50 years ago??"

Even better: "Search engines are your friends". That would
be a good start for 2019.
It just doesn't have the same ring to it, though. Those slushy
fricatives just don't cut it. A good catch phrase must not only mean
what it says, it must have a certain rhythm and sound. "google" has
become a generic verb for "search on line". Google may not like that use
of its trademark, and you may like it even less, but there's not much
they or you can do about it. English speakers generally don't give a
rat's ass for such niceties. They'll use the words they want, how they
want, when they want.
I wonder what the answer might be!! ;-P
