“Apple’s newest smartphone also outpaced the 2012 Election, the Summer Olympics and even the Gangnam Style dance as the most popular news story,” Soper reports. “On that same list, Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD was the ninth-most searched story while the Facebook IPO came in tenth.”

Soper reports, “After the iPhone 5, the most-searched consumer electronics were: 2. iPad; 3. Samsung Galaxy III; 4. Amazon Kindle; 5. iPad 3. Along with the iPod Touch (6th) and iPhone 4S (9th), that’s five Apple products in the top 10.”
