Ungoogleable

Not at all impressed by Google today, who have been seeking to control the organic development of language:

Objections from Google have forced the removal of the word "ungoogleable" from a list of new Swedish words, the Language Council of Sweden says.

The language watchdog defines "ungoogleable", or "ogooglebar" in Swedish, as something that cannot be found with any search engine.

But Google wanted the meaning to relate only to Google searches, according to the council.

Google responded by saying it was protecting its trademark. 

Extremely uncool.
