Straight Angle™: Syndrome!
Tuesday, December 06, 2005
Well, I know many of us say Xerox for photocoying. Infact, I never knew such a word photocopying existed, till some five years back. It had always been Xerox for me. I still use the word Xerox for photocopying. I know there are many more who use the word to mean the action. That was in the Yester-years.
So, what is becoming Generic like that, today?
Search - Google:
Here, offlate, I had seen that I use the word Google more to mean Search than anything. I had seen many people say, I googled for "X"...I googled for "Y"....etc. But, that is restricted to searching for something online. I wonder, will that extrapolate to the offline world too?
Search and Buy - Amazon:
I am increasingly reading notes, that say to "I wud have amazoned", to mean that he/she would have searched for it in net and bought it!!
These are the two words that I had come across..but if given a chance, I would add,
Gmailed it- to mean Email!
Bloggered it - to mean blogged!
Flickered it- to mean had posted some photos online!
delicioused it- to mean had bookmarked it online!
consumed it- to mean that I had read a book!
Any more pointers from you?
