Year 2012 is close to saying Goodbye. Lots of new drops came into the sea of the technology world. So much was discussed. So many things got hyped. Little went according to expectations; some were only “so-so” for technology

Today, I want to highlight all those favorite news, gossips, and gadgets that were among the top  Google searches this past year. Google has presented a list of those most searched topics for 2012.

As per Google, “Euro 2012” was the best as compared to “Olympics” searches in year 2012 in England, told by Sun.

The search related to Whitney Houston’s death in the second month of this year got people’s attention more than Kate.

The Song ‘Gangnam Style’ won the competition against ‘Call Me Maybe’ as the most followed pop song and ‘Skyfall’ topped ‘Prometheus’ as the most asked about film.

The results for Google’s England results are divided into trending searches and most searched.

The news of Justin Bieber’s splitting from Selena Gomez was the top searched relationship bust-up while Victoria Pendleton beat Georgia Salpa as the highest looked for participant in a reality television show.

TV soaps were continuously on top of the ratings but the biggest followed show this year was the BBC kids’ show ‘Mike The Knight’ which beat US terror drama ‘Homeland’ and ‘Towie.’
