Google has released its annual list of the most popular search terms entered by its users, and Apple’s iPhone 5s took third place for the year. Gee, why would anyone be interested in that?
Apple’s third-place finish was revealed in Google’s annual Year-End Zeitgeist list, which ranked the top 10 global trending searches of 2013. The iPhone 5s finished behind first-place Nelson Mandela, the South African civil rights revolutionary who passed away earlier this month, and second-place Paul Walker, the Fast and Furious actor who died in a car crash a few weeks ago.
The only other smartphone making an appearance in the top 10 was Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4. The handset came in eighth, just ahead of Sony’s PlayStation 4 gaming console.
The rest of the top 10 subjects included: Cory Monteith, Harlem Shake, Boston Marathon, Royal Baby, and North Korea.
