Using Google as a verb

An interesting example of Google being used as a verb can be found in this Pontiac television commercial. In the spot, which is being being shown regionally in the United States, someone is shown entering the term PONTIAC into the Google search box with the voiceover:

"Don't take our word for it, Google 'Pontiac' to find out!"

This is a great illustration of the power of Google the brand. Are broadcast and search mediums beginning to merge? Stay tuned for more...
