On Xiaonei.com, a user named Yu Chunzi commented, after I stating that the only instant messenger I use frequently is Google Talk,  that I am a Gugekong (谷歌控), or Googli-con in English (see lolicon), meaning someone who is crazy about Google. I could not find an existing  translation of this term, partially originated from Japanese, into English; therefore I made it up myself.

I am not sure whether there have been people using this term before, in either Chinese or English. (Are there better translations?) But I think I am (happily) qualified to be called one.
