You know you're a Google fanboy ... when you dream about Google releasing new products and are disappointed (in the dream) because the registrations were closed early.

:)

What are your Google fanboy moments?

When you discover something new, that other people haven't yet... :D

Oh oh...
And also of course, visiting at least one Google office :)

When checking this blog to see if Google's released a new product is more important than Checking your email :)

When you use a proxy to use Google even though MSN, Yahoo and Ask are not blocked (Note: "Non Geeks" at my school where doing this as well so maybe it's just the power of Google)

You hated YouTube.... Until Google brought it

You Use "Did You Mean:" to correct people's spelling in email and IM

You get annoyed when ITV news Changes from Google Earth to Microsoft Virtual Earth

Guilty of all of the above :D ([put at-character here] some point)

That actually only started happening to me this week, I turned my laptop on and the urge to see if Google Presentations had been launched overpowered my usual habit of going straight to my email.

It wouldn't happen to be "GDrive XP" that started this, would it? :D

Habits are hard to break though! Anyway Blogoscoped has been the first non-Gmail site I visit for ages, although the amount I check this site has increased a lot since I finished my GCSEs in June :)

Your profile page (blogoscoped.com/forum/posts-by ...) has your top result as comments you made about Google on another site

When your unique answer for all questions is "google is your friend".

When you search for the button "I'm feeling lucky" on your remote-control

When you are waiting since 2 years to change your mobile just because you want your next mobile will be a gPhone.

When you smile like an idiot when you see the google logo somewhere in a TV show.

When you switch your entire office over to Google Apps and get them hooked on Google Talk and Google Docs & Spreadsheets and you tell them you don't support outlook or any other E-mail clients.

You'll forget how to type "goodbye", you will type "googbye" instead.

When you have some kind of satisfaction switching a friend or relative from MSN to Gmail/Gtalk account.

When you visited Google French headquarter and have a talk about Google with Marketing Director Sandrine Murcia in a sofa of the resting room with some drink and food from Google Chef.

It's your first day at college, you are asked to research something, there is a mix between IE (6) and Firefox (1.5) users and every one uses Google as their Search Engine of choice (your teacher never mentioned a specific search engine) Yet you are the only one using Google Docs :D (every one else is on Word)

When you drive 450 kilometers (including traffic jams) in order (among other things) to meet a couple of googlers ^^

"When you have more than 200 Google related feeds in your Google Reader" > hé hé hé ;-)

When your sleepy and watching "Casino Royale" and you suddenly wake up as you see the Google (UK) homepage pop-up for less than a second. (Then rewind and keep pausing until you get to a frame with it on)

When you want a product to come out and when it does your disappointed by it but still defend it against your friends (Presentations before you ask)

[put at-character here]James

[put at-character here]Jilm
Yh I hate it but it's the first place I check for Video now rather than GVid
