How ‘Google it’ could be redefined in the smartphone era

— on smartphones may be a lot different than the traditional Web
searches we conduct on PCs and laptops. This can happen thanks to the
contextual data smartphones know about us, as Quartz explains:
In contrast to the paltry number of times users of Everything.Me are
searching the Web each day, they’re engaging in context-based
interactions with their customized home screens dozens of times a day.
