iPhone 5 - Yahoo

We recently posted the top Bing news searches for 2012, of which the iPhone 5 had the top spot. Now Yahoo has published a similar list. Thankfully, this time around, the U.S. Election is at the top ahead of the iPhone 5. We're not political junkies around here, but it does seem like a country's leadership should be more important than a smartphone, right?

In any case the top searches, in order, were the U.S. election, the iPhone 5, Kim Kardashian, Kate Upton, Kate Middleton, Whitney Houston, the Olympics, politcal polls, Lindsay Lohan and Jennifer Lopez. Seems like we have a star-focused society, don't we? The top gadget searches included the iPhone 5, the iPad 3, the iPad mini, the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Kindle Fire, the iPhone 4, the Barnes & Noble Nook, the iPod touch, the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Samsung Galaxy Note.
