That was a very strange remark and only made me shake my head. It really might be becoming a household word.
Though the news was on in the background and I wasn't really watching. I was at my neighbours setting up their adsl and various other things. She brought it to my attention, possibly, because i had just answered the "what is a search engine" question. Also "what is a browser", "where do you get music", "why are those lights flashing" among others.
Interesting evening all around.
Last year I volunteered to help teach computer classes at my kids' school in the computer center. I noticed that the *only* search engine covered in the Internet research part of the classes was Google.
He said he never uses Google - he doesn't worry about search engine marketing, obviously! He stuck with Alta Vista for all those years and considers Google a "college experiment".
Obviously a rare bird!
