'Googling' Is now Grammatically Correct

The latest edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary includes "google" as a verb, among some 100 other new words that have officially made it into the American and English lexicon, reports the Associated Press (via Marketing Pilgrim). Merriam-Webster lower-cases the new dictionary entry. CNET reports that earlier, on June 15, the Oxford English Dictionary also released a list of new entries in OED Online, including "Google" (upper case) as a verb, as well as "adware," "mash-up," "texting," "pixelate" and "uninstall," among others.
