well, if, on every search i do, the first result is a wikipedia entry that answers my query than, at some point I will bookmark wikepedia and bypass google.
The same principle applies to many, many topics...look for movie info go to imdb...look for industry specific information...go to the industry authority website...etc.
Throw in the way people use fb, twitter etc to ask their friends for info plus more and more mobile phone 'finder apps', all bypassing google and you have receipe for 'search is dead'
Google search turning into some sort of glorified yellow pages only speeds up the process of people using alternative sources to 'search'.
