In an interesting note from TechCrunch, this is the first year were an Apple product has failed to make it in the top 10 of the Global or U.S search results. Another interesting not ie the amount of focus on disasters or tragedies 1,3,4,7,8, and 10 are all focused on tragedies (U.S searches).  This is because this type of news is more likely to spread and it normally contains the most coverage by media. However, in the honor of Robin Williams let’s say goodbye one last time.
