Every year, the Bing search engine blog publishes a ranking of the most popular queries of 2014 by category. Who topped Bing's Most Popular Devices and Hottest Games lists ?
Bing is a search engine actively promoted by Microsoft. Well, at least someone has to compete with the venerable Google. Until now, Microsoft has compiled an overall ranking among search queries. So, for example, in 2012, the iPhone 5 outstripped the US presidential elections and the London Olympics. Starting in 2013, the Redmondites decided that the leading position of gadgets over some events looked somehow unpatriotic and divided their rating into categories.
If last year the Microsoft Xbox product became the leader among requests for electronics, and the iPhone took the second place, the iPad - the fourth, ahead of Windows Phone and Surface, then this year the flagship of the Cupertin company iPhone 6 became the unprecedented leader.
The full Bing search leaderboard for Popular Devices is as follows:
1. iPhone 6.
2. Xbox One.
5. Surface Pro 3.
6. Kindle Fire.
7. Windows Phone.
8. Galaxy S4.
10. Google Glass.
An equally interesting category was " Hot Apps ", in which the first ten lines were occupied by:
7. Candy Crash Saga.
9. Angry Birds.
By the way, last year there was no normal struggle among applications. Candy Crush, Angry Birds and Bad Piggies became the only leaders of not the popular top ten, but only the top three.
The leaders of the other more or less popular categories in the United States are:
- YouTube sensation - Sky Does Minecraft, Austin Mahone and Smoch.
- Popular TV Shows - The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars and Pawn Shop Stars.
- Top movies - Frozen, Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Other War.
- Video Games - Destiny, Lone Survivor and Halo: Master Chief Collection.
- Xbox games - Minecraft, The Walking Dead: Season 2 and Plants vs. Zombies.
