In 2015 the Apple iPhone 6s was the consumer tech item Google users have most searched for. The revelation comes as part of Google’s annual Year in Search report, which has gone live today.
Apple’s smartphone is followed in the technology Top 10 by the Samsung Galaxy S6, Apple Watch, iPad Pro, LG G4, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy J5, HTC One M9, Huawei Nexus 6P, and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4.
That said, none of these terms have made it into the overall Top 10 list for the year, which is led by searches such as Lamar Odom, Charlie Hebdo, and Jurassic World.
Last year the iPhone 6 was the most searched for tech-related item, so its successor’s victory this time around is hardly surprising.
Back in late September when Google unveiled the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, the company also introduced the Google Pixel C, an Android-based 2-in-1 with a premium build and some of the hottest specs in the Android ecosystem. As months passed and the new Nexus smartphones launched, however, Google made no mention of the Google Pixel C until a few hours ago.
Today, more than a month after its unveiling, the Google Pixel C finally landed in the Google Play Store.
The Google Pixel C comes with a 10.2-inch display with a resolution of 2560 by 1800 pixels. Aside from the high … – Source

In the beginning, the webcomic highlighted the racial profiling of Sikhs in the post 9/11 world. “I had gone through this at the airport, where I had to go through double and triple screening,” he says. Singh began the series for his friend’s website SikhChic and initially hosted it on Myspace. He wanted to name the strip Karol Park, after a Delhi neighbourhood known for its Punjabi residents, but eventually settled on SikhPark because of its broad appeal among the NRI community. …

Dozens of employees of the San Bernardino County Health Department went to a work event on Wednesday, not knowing that hours later the packed conference room would be attacked by one of their own
Just after 11 am, Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik fired dozens of rounds indiscriminately into the room as people leapt behind toppled tables to survive the barrage of bullets.
Shannon Johnson, 45, and coworker Denise Peraza, 27, were in the room as the pair opened fire, and crouched behind a chair
“I got you,” said Johnson, as he wrapped his arm around her, shielding her from the gunfire.
Johnson died in the attack that took the lives of 14 people and left 21 others injured. Peraza survived, though she was shot in the back, and she says Johnson is the reason she is still alive. …
