CNET Top 5: Tech search terms

3:17 /

As we finish the first quarter of the decade, your searches tell us what's hottest in tech.

Lot of stuff going on in personal tech these days: Smarpthones outsell PC�s, tablets are more than just iPad, handhelds are going 3D and you�re going nuts trying to stay on top of it all. I�m B.C. with Top 5 hottest tech search terms of Q1 2011. Let�s see what�s intriguing you the most based on fastest growing searches on Google in the category of Computers and Technology, that�s where the gear lives. #5 is �Nintendo 3DS�. Up 200% in global searches in Q1. That may all just be Bakalar Googling this picture of himself () but its also the rest of you checking out the 3D-enabled follow-on to the very hot Nintendo DS. The 3DS is just hitting market and among other things those searches will tell you is that it does 3D without you having to wear stupid- looking glasses that are bigger than it. #4 is �PPTV�. This is a massive streaming TV and video service aimed at the Asian market. Sort of a Netflix + Hulu + Amazon but with 120 TV stations, 300 live streams and 20,000 titles for VOD. Intriguing offerings like Mischievous Cartoons and the Hunan Super Girl Competition helped it draw a 250% bump in searches in Q1. #3 is �iPad 2�. 450% search growth as it went from rumor to reality. A lot of that searching may have been people wanting to make sure they didn�t miss anything since the 2�s biggest �wow� was just the addition of cameras that should have been there from the start. #2 hottest term in Q1 was �teamviewer 6� with 1,050% growth. TeamViewer is a screen sharing tool for remote support and virtual meetings. Its hallmarks are that it lets you do a session without pre-installed software, Java app or even an account and it punches through firewalls well. Sounds slick�and dangerous. Before we get to the #1 hottest search term of Q1 2011, let�s take a quick peak at the 5 hottest telecom search terms: Which brings us to the #1 hottest search term in Computers & Electronics: �iOS 4.3� with a huge 2,300% search growth in Q1. 4.3 has mobile hotspot�AirPlay video for 3rd party apps�stream from an iTunes library to an iOS device�and some new four and five finger multitouch gestures which look obscene if you don�t do them right. A lot of that search growth is certainly people learning to use 4.3 features which you can start doing in the How To tab at CNET TV. And for more Top 5�s like, most without obscene hand gestures, head to top5.cnet.com I�m Brian Cooley, Thanks for watching.
