iTech Sneaking Into Your Vocabulary

Who uses the word “search” anymore? The verb “search,” used in its internet context, has found a more powerful synonym — “Google.”

When you need to find information online, you google it. The word “search” is now kinda lame.

Adobe’s popular graphic application, Photoshop, has also found its way into our everyday vocabulary as a synonym for any form of photo-editing or remodeling, regardless of whether what medium was used. Like Google, it has gone from noun to verb.

Other notable mentions:

Blog: “I am blogging* on my blog right now.” *[writing]

Facebook: “Hey let’s keep in touch. Call or Facebook* me later.”  *[holler at me online]
