Windows 7: I'm beginning to use Bing more than Google now, so how do I say.....

I'm beginning to use Bing more than Google now, so how do I say.....

Greetings,

When using Google and I wanted to tell someone I did a search using it I would say, I googled it. It is a phrase that is well known and used.

However, because I am now using Bing more than Google because of privacy concerns, would I say I bingd it?

How about bingeld?

I can "see" why you would suggest that but to represent the past tense in English you just need a 'd', right? Besides, adding the eld to bing would be making it a completely other word (?).

Please, I am just thinking out loud, NOT making any judgements. Your idea is as good as any.

What about bing-d? I don't think it would catch on because folks are more inclined to to shorten words and the hyphen might be too laborious a task for them.

You are the first person that has ever said they use Bing more than Google...at least first person that has said it in a forum.

I would then be a +2 - I've found for just about everything, Bing is no better or worse than Google. I've gotten out of the habit of mechanical searching with keywords and gone more natural language, which helps - Google seems to be worse at this, and Bing better. I also prefer Bing's translator and related items / related searches built in, although I still prefer Google's maps (although Bing maps are growing on me - it's just like search, it's been a learning curve / comfort zone to break to switch...).

Yes, I have joined the Bing Club too. It is the default search on my primary IE9 browser and I have been quite impressed with it as of late. As for making a verb out of it, I think that 'Binged' would work.

From those of you who have replied I think I think the capital letter B is a good idea.

Concerning the ending: in English, the sound of the suffix ed is pronounced d. Isn't it?

Would you agree that we have narrowed it down to either Bingd or Binged?

Seems like a good idea. There's just one tiny problem with it...

binged - definition of binged by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Oops. (Maybe that was Microsoft's idea all along?!? LOL)

I am a full convert to Bing-a-ling-a-doo-ski and I'd feel real fine telling my friends and family that I just "banged out some fascinating articles on local church organizations, would you like me to bang out a few blogs on the subject, it's not a problem, i mean the thing practically bangs itself once i start typing"

sure it's not directly translated, but how does one change between verbs, nouns and tenses when the base is the sound made when you hit a wine glass for a toast.......bad preplanning on BING's part
