This year has been marked with some huge news - and we don’t mean just ones necessarily related to technology. There was the devastating earthquake in Japan…

We can conclude, whoever buys an iPhone does search the web for it before buying it. I guess we can scrap again one of the comments out here. (people who buy an iPhone don't know what they've bought)

Obviously people who buy iPhones know what they've bought. The argument is that they don't know what else is out there that could be better...
Even if they did know what else was out there, most people who want the iPhone wouldn't care.

Of course they know what else is out there. Your previous (previous) phone is of course then a samsung nokia or BB. Then you know exactly what's the style of the brand. Can't you also accept that some people changed from android to iphone and vica versa. And don't say that were low-end android devices. Not all of them are. They know what's on the market. Maybe they search other phones differently.
And what else is out there that could be better. Could be better is totally subjectif. First thing people choose: choose smartphone or no smartphone. There are people who still find a normal regular (no touch screen) better. And they got mostly great battery life because it's not a touch screen, then needs less power. This just an example that could be better subjectif.

You just love to argue don't you. I was pointing out that nobody really says people who buy the iPhone "don't know what they've bought".
I can also accept that some people change, I myself switched from iPhone to Android.

Someone said something like that. But not you apparantly. you changed it to what they know what they've bought and don't know what else is out there that could be better.
I think it were some people that said something like: people who got an iphone are iTards and don't know how bad it actually is. Well if people looked it in the web. Then they know the cons and pro's of the phone. And i'm sure a lot of people also compare it to other phones.

You have got to be kidding. The same people that say having 50 different droids available for people to chose from vs 1 iPhone also say nobody knows those 50 droids are out there?? Just go to any cell store and most phones are droids.
You can't have it both ways iamcc. Your BS is just too obvious

What are you talking about? I never said that...
And I don't have "bullshit" I just have an opinion that's different from yours, so I guess I must be trolling.

If they are looking in Yahoo, it becomes pretty clear those users doesn´t know much about technology. Probably iPhone was first in Bing searches too.

well, there are a lot of glitches to look up, and complaints forums to search for.

Ha, that's funny and TRUE! They probably want to figure out how to make custom ringtones!

I doubt it is for research, it is to lookup stuff after they purchased the iphone - find info on issues and sales of the product. Wow, I may have done 2 searches involving the iphone in the last 5 years....maybe that is a record of some sort....
13. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
Well, if you type "iPhone 4S" into google the third or fourth most searched topic is the battery life.
Those rare people experiencing problems must really be spamming Google search...
14. networkdood (Posts: 6330; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
wow, either the issue is bad, or people are just curious. Even sadder is that searches for celebrities were high on the most googled search list - I am guess STALKERS?

Wow, imoressive, but not surprising. Everyody wants an iPhone, that is so true.

is this just searches for iPhone, or does this include people searching things such as "Exploding iPhone" or "iphone battery life sucks"
