Google on NPR

| | Comments (0)
NPR now uses the word 'Google' as a verb when giving out web info for their sponsors. It's an interesting change. A few weeks ago they would actually say/spell out the URLs.. something like: "... on the web at: www.company.com..." now they just say something similar to: "... Google 'Company Name' for their website...".

If this catches on, and is a reliable method of entry, then domain names become quite a bit less important to the average consumer. No more memorizing what kind of slashes to use (explorer now takes either -- but people don't know that), no more remembering abbreviations or specific hyphen placement. Just the company name.. like it used to be.

Way to go Google.
