Microsoft has revealed the iPhone 5 to be the top-searched news story of 2012, along with a host of other results from search engine Bing.
The software giant says Kim Kardashian is most-searched person of 2012, while baby fever dominates most-searched celeb events and Justin Bieber is most-searched musician.
"As we look back at 2012, Bing searches show it was a year of familiar faces, momentous events and baby fever," Bing says.
"While last year people were singing “Baby, baby, baby” with Justin Bieber as the most-searched person of 2011, 2012 was the year of the real baby, as celebrity births were five of the top 10 celebrity events.
"From new reality stars such as Honey Boo Boo to viral hits such as “Gangnam Style” and airwave darlings such as Taylor Swift, Bing captured history through the searches that mark the year’s most fascinating people, sensations and moments in time."
