Google Trends now features top charts and eye-candy visualizations
Google Trends, Google's very own tool that lets users compare searches across the web, has been udpated with new charts listing the most-searched things in the web. Ranging from 40 categories, those who use the tool can now view top charts of actors, athletes, animals, and more. A quick check on the top charts for the "Athlete" category reveals that Micheal Jordan is still on top of the searches, followed by no other than Kobe Bryant.
Oprah Winfrey tops the "Business people" category while MIT leads the "Colleges & universities" section. The list goes on with SQL topping the "Software technologies" category and Amazon for "Retail companies." For those who are intimidated with charts, there's an option to view the charts visually. On the left-hand panel, users can select the "Visualize Hot Searches in full-screen" to view everything in a colorful display.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
