Google tech search terms

Culture
It's CNET Top 5, I'm Brian Cooley. We're looking at the hottest trending tech search terms on Google from around the globe the last 30 days and it's a list reflecting an uncomfortable mix of serious geeks and regular folks. And of the iPhone's in there, but not where you think: At the bottom. #5 is "iPhone 4G". I mean, it's not like some form of iPhone will ever NOT be in a top tech searches list, sort of like the preamble in the Constitution. But the iPhone 4G got an extra boost thanks to the poor slob from Apple who had the Worst Day Out Drinking Ever and left the prototype on a bar stool. So a lot of us were out there searching not just to find out about the phone but to find out how fired he was. Which he apparently isn't. Yet. #4, just ahead of Apple is, ironically, Adobe. Not Flash, but "Adobe CS5", the latest iteration of Adobe's needlessly confusing bundlings of the software they sell. With something like 20 products wrapped in a variety of 4 or 5 CS5 bundles. I'm not sure people were searching to get news & reviews on the new Creative Suites bt probably just to figure out what they hell they are and why they cost so much. #3 is Ubuntu 10.04. And they said Tom Merritt left the building. This highly awaited new release of the popular Linux distro got open source types -- and apparently a lot of others -- all up in a lather for its fast boot time of as little as 10 seconds (about the time it takes my windows machines jut to spin up up all their cooling fans), Ubuntu One Music store and MeMenu to wrapping up your social networks, contacts and shared docs. #2 is Gizmodo. You know, the folks who brought you #5. Yep, take something that belongs to Steve Jobs and then take it apart for the world to see, yep you'll get noticed. On Google now, in crosshairs later. Before we get to #1, Let's take a look at this week's number one misspelled tech search: It's "Fecebook". I mean I think it's a typo. Or a lot of users considered opinion of Facebook. Or just a lot of folks looking for Japanese porn. OK, now our #1 hottest trending Google tech search term for the last 30 days...it's "Antispyware soft". This was way out in front of anything else, and probably a mix of ongoing spyware concerns mixed with the misconception by a lot of folks that you need antispyware to take back your privacy from Facebook. Come to think of it, I think we're just about to that point. That's it for this edition of CNET Top 5. I'm B.C. See you next time.
