What did we search for most in 2012?

Google has published their annual Google Zeigeist review, that includes a list of the top searches for each year. In the first place there is a singer who passed away in 2012.

It’s Whitney Houston, who got 1.2 trillion searches, surpassing even those for this year’s musical madness, the famous Gangnam Style, by Korean rapper PSY. In the third place, there is hurricane Sandy, that concerned a major percentage of Americans, among others. In the fourth place there is a familiar technological product, the iPad 3, and in the fifth place, there is Diablo 3.

As for the gadgets category however, where the iPad 3 is king of the hill, there is a strange absence of the iPhone 5. As we wrote yesterday, Time magazine has selected this one as gadget of the year. Anyway, in the second place, there is the Samsung Galaxy S3.
