Google

So I found myself saying the words "I googled x" today, and that got me wondering . . .

Just how prevalent is this new verb? Is its use limited to the computer-savvy? Is its use limited to English speakers? (i.e. do Germans say 'ich googled x'?). Also, if/when you use 'google' as a verb, are you meaning that you used the search engine Google specifically, or simply that you looked something up?

Does this interest anyone besides me? ;)
