Apple iPhone 6 is one of the top ten Yahoo searches of 2014
Minecraft was ranked second, with third place going to Ariana Grande. Fourth and fifth place went to Jennifer Lawrence and Kaley Cuoco, respectively. Kim Kardashian used her visible assets to place as the sixth most requested Yahoo search of the year, followed by Disney's animated hit Frozen. Miley Cyrus ranked eighth, just ahead of the latest iteration of Apple's flagship smartphone.
Yahoo also listed things that were our obsessions for 2014. Not quite receiving publicity the whole year, these were the things that were searched for on Yahoo that came into our consciousness quickly, and then disappeared. A good example of that is Flappy Bird. The successful mobile game was pulling in tens of thousands of dollars daily in advertising revenue until its creator pulled the game. The foul fowl finished as the second most searched Obsession of 2014.
On top was the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Even handsets got into the act, getting drenched with a bucket of ice cold water while raising money for Lou Gehrig's Disease. Besides seeing phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) get drenched, we also had the pleasure of seeing T-Mobile CEO John Legere get soaked.
