Google’s Top Searches Have a Strong Apple Flavor
Google’s annual Zeitgeist roundup of the year’s fastest-rising queries once again reflected the world’s fascination with celebrities and tragedies (or in the case of 2011’s No. 1, Rebecca Black, a combination of the two). But the real winner was anything to do with Apple — among the year’s Top 10 were searches on the anticipated iPhone 5, the iPad 2 and the late Steve Jobs. Lots more grist in the various categories.
