How would you say it?

If you did some research on the Internet and found the answer you wanted using Google, you would say "I googled it"

But what if you are using Bing?

Can you say "I binged it". Doesn't sound quite right somehow.

What would be the correct way? Any ideas.....?

What's wrong with "Bingled"?

They shouldn't have pinched Bing Crosby's name anyway.

Perhaps when you find something using Bing you shout Bingo!

Bingled might get corrupted to Bungled.

Now that's strange, my spell-checker doesn't like Bingled but is okay with Binged

I do use the term "I googled it" when in fact I tend to use anything but Google to search as I'm thoroughly peeved at the amount of advertising generated by Google searches.It's getting harder to find information I seek without wading through hundreds of pages all offering links to a company,& I'm too darn lazy to discover what format I need wrap the search terms when I can simply switch to a lesser search engine & get the same information from the first page of results.

Just as you would Hoover with any make of vacuum cleaner, you would Google with any brand of search engine.

They're one of those luck companies that find by accident, that their name has become synonymous with a particular activity.
