One of Google's worst fears may have been realised. The latest edition of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary includes the word "google" which means to use the well-known search engine to look for information on the web.
The entry means that in addition to being a proper noun, the word "google" - without capitalisation of the "g" - is now a common transitive verb.
In the latest publicly available filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission made available earlier this week, Google identified the key risks it faced in seeking to maintain its dominance in the search market and preserving its revenue growth rate.

Definition: to search for information about a specific person through the Google search engine.
Google now essentially has an ad in the dictionary, how many companies can say that? I'm not sure this is all bad for Google, I think they may just be making a big deal about it for the extra PR they will receive, and by PR I mean public relations.
