Google should be honored, the Swedes could have opted for "obingbar". What a dumb objection! Google should be happy that the verb "to google" is for a long time already a synonym for online search.

I think then ogooglebar now needs to become a meme. I know they don't want negative connotations of their name, but if the shoe fits . . .
This is a classic dick move on their part.

What if Apple wanted to remove the word "unappealing" from the dictionary ?
I guess, "appalling" fits more with Apple's ecosystem...
