Do you guys think that Google is fast becoming a generic word? We've been hearing its usage as a verb ("googling" and "googled") recently - so does this mean that Google will lost its trademark due to genericide?

I think it will still be a while before they lose it but I think focuses will change so they will hold on to it.
