Even though Windows 8 is among the talked topics in many tech blogs, Microsoft's own search engine showed that the most searched in Bing is the iPhone 5. Microsoft commented that "Speculation and excitement around the launch of iPhone 5 built up throughout the year, making this the most searched news story on Bing in 2012." Yes, it really did beat more interesting topics such as the olympics and even the election. Amongst the most related searches are also Gangnam Style, Kony 2012, and other pop starts and artists. The sad thing is that even in it's own engine Microsoft took 7th and 10th place in the technology category, with the Xbox taking 7th and Windows 8 phone as the tenth.
What shocks me is that apple took 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th and 9th places, with iPhone 5, iPad, iPad 3, iPod touch, and iPhone 4S. It looks like only a few are excited about Windows 8. What do you think? Many users don't care about bing anyways, so I thought that was no surprise. That's just my opinion
