No matter how you look at it this is a simply amazing stat! Apple’s iPhone edged past the top news events, celebrities and pop stars as the top searched term on the Web in 2011, according to Yahoo! (Reuters)
Yahoo has reported the iPhone has proven to be more popular than celebrity Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez – all top 5 searches. Top news related search was US Casey Anthony who was acquitted of murdering her daughter coming in a #2 position.
Its not since way back in 2002 that a “gadget” has taken the number one spot, (playstation 2) and when you take into account the current economic climate this stat is even more impressive. If your even half thinking about developing an app this news should be all the justification you need!
