Vlingo releases most popular actions of 2010
You might have heard about most popular phone, gadget and accessory rankings of the passing year, but what about most popular actions? Vlingo, creators of the popular personal assistant app that turns words into actions, have come up with a list based on their app statistics. Want to know what is the thing or service we can't live without?

It's not smartphones, geeks. It's pizza. Tasty, crusty, delicious pizza tops the most popular local businesses called, mapped or navigated to. Coffee was the runner-up here as you might have noticed those Starbucks are popping up all around the place for a reason.

Who would think that people would ask their smartphones about food only? Well, users were interested in all kinds of entertainment as well. Movie searches and tickets booked through smartphones showed that Tron took the top spot in most requested movies, followed by the wizardry tales of Harry Potter.
