Apple’s iPhone Tops Yahoo’s List of Most Searched Tech Items
Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone has once again topped internet search engine Yahoo’s (NASDAQ:YHOO) annual list of the most searched tech items. According to Yahoo via the U.K.’s Daily Star, “Apple iPhone” was the most searched tech item in 2013. Although Yahoo’s list of tech item searches is often simply a reflection of trending news stories, it can also provide hints about consumers’ shopping intentions.
Although the list didn’t specify how many times each item was searched, Apple’s iPhone was followed by Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) Kindle, while Samsung’s (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy took third place. However, Apple took three of the top ten spots on Yahoo’s most-searched-for tech items of 2013, more than any other tech company.
Apple’s iPad and iPod took the fourth and eighth places on the list, respectively. Sony (NYSE:SNE) secured two spots on Yahoo’s search list with the fifth-ranked PlayStation 4 and the tenth-ranked Xperia. Sony uses the Xperia brand name for both its tablets and smartphones so it was unclear which item was actually being searched.
