Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        As we enter the new year…Google is telling us about the top trending searches of 2018.   Google tech expert Molly VandenBerg says you may get a kick out of what made the top of the list…

“The number one trending search item in the U.S. as well as globally was the World Cup.  So there was a lot of interest in that which is somewhat shocking in the U.S. because they didn’t even qualify.”

The number one how to search last year…was how to vote.   There were a lot of searches related to the Mega Millions lottery.   For movies…Black Panther was the most searched for..

“Big movie at the box office, big movie with the critics and so that took our number one slot for movies but we also took a look into songs.  You know this song didn’t necessarily come out this year but we saw a lot of interest in it.  And the number one was Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Helped no doubt, by the film.
