Wii, 360 And...Runescape Top Yahoo! Search Queries For 2008

Illustration for article titled Wii, 360 And...Runescape Top Yahoo! Search Queries For 2008

It's no Google, but in the absence of Google's stats, it'll have to do: according to Yahoo!, the Wii, 360, PSP and even PS3 were amongst the 10 most-searched for technology items for 2008.


Impressive, yes, but also slightly misleading. See, by limiting it to "technology", we get a doctored playing field. What would be really impressive would be if a game or console made the overall top 10. A game like, say, Runescape.

Yeah, Runescape. Yahoo! say it was the fifth most-searched word on their search engine for the year. Ahead of WoW, ahead of Eve Online, ahead of, well, all but four other words/terms in existence. That's impressive.


Back on the technology list, here's the top 10:

1. Digital Camera
2. iPhone
3. Wii
4. Xbox 360
5. PSP
6. Blackberry
7. Skype
8. PS3
9. iPod
10. Garmin

Ah, Runescape..

... What the hell is Runescape again? It sounds like it could be some crappy thing I may have tried 10 years ago.
