The Ask.com blog has a funny retort to Google’s almost unbearably annoying blog-lecture about the proper usage of its name. Michael Ferguson, the Ask blogger, nails Google’s faux-chatty tone. A taste:
Q: Do people Google on Ask?
A: Looking at our logs, people do seem to google on Ask.com. They type in “google” and go to Google. They also do this with Yahoo, eBay, Amazon etc. So you may find that you Yahoo on Google, eBay on Yahoo, and even Amazon on Amazon (if you were looking for books about the rainforest on that wonderful shopping site). Just this morning I Microsoft’d on the Ask.com Blog Search. Felt good.
It makes me think I should start doing more of my googling over at Ask.
